Friday News 22.4.16

Dear Parents/Carers,

School target for w/c 25th April 2016; Remember to follow the football rota.

We know that in the nicer weather children like to play on the school site before and after school. However, we are unable to supervise children before 8.40am and after 3.40pm, and therefore they must not be on the site outside these times. We have had two serious near-misses this week and we would very much appreciate your support in helping to keep all our children safe outside school hours.

Please continue to encourage your child to read at home every night. Those who have read regularly during the week and had their planners signed by parents are entered in the Reading Raffle, and 5 lucky winners get a prize every week. You have to be in it to win it, so please help your child to enter by reading with them.

Tour de Yorkshire
On 30 April, there will be a closure in place outside the rolling road closures in Monk Fryston and Hillam. Water Lane between the A63 and Hillam village will be closed immediately after the women’s race, which follows the stage 2 route from Otley to Doncaster. This closure will be between approximately 10am and 2pm. A signed diversion will be in place.
Closures may be lengthened for safety reasons on the day.
Safety for riders and spectators is paramount, so vehicles should not be parked on the race route. Details of car parking arrangements are available at www.northyorks.gov.uk/tour. Click here to find out more about the road closures.
