No Food or Drink on the Schoolyard

We have a policy of no food or drink on the schoolyard at Carleton School. This helps us to keep the yard litter free as well as preventing bees and other insects and animals from being attracted to the playground. This policy applies to students arriving at school in the morning with food and drink. Students are encouraged to finish their food and drinks at the place of purchase. They will be directed off the school grounds to finish these. (Special school events are the exception to this rule.)

iPad Code for Math Dreambox

The code you will need when you first download the Math Dreambox app is 42cv/Carleton. This code is specific to Carleton School students.
