Birchwood Locker Pickup

Tomorrow, Wednesday May 27, we begin the retrieval of locker items!

  • If you are walking from the area, please enter the front doors of the school.
  • If you notice others in the lobby, please remain outside.
  • It may be helpful to bring reusable bags as our plastic bags are not overly durable.
  • A reminder that there will be no parking on side streets to maintain traffic flow. 

There will be opportunities in the future to say goodbye and connect with staff. This process will be communicated at a later date. 

In keeping with public health guidelines and traffic safety we have developed the following retrieval plan:

*Please pick up siblings’ belongings at the oldest sibling’s time. We understand there will be some overlap in pickup times but we are trying to manage traffic flow and safety in the area.
