School staff will be available to respond to questions via phone at 705-737-4080.<div><br></div><div>Parents wishing te register new students may do so at Warnica Public School. Algonquin Ridge staff will be at Warnica Public School to facilitate the registration process on Tuesday, August 29 from 1 to 3 p.m., and Wednesday, August 30 from 9 to 11 a.m. Warnica Public School is located at 211 Warnica Road in Barrie. The school number is 705-722-3000.  ​​​​</div><div><br></div><div>The school will open as scheduled on Tuesday, September 5, but construction will continue into the school year. Some changes to student entry doors and parking lot routines will be required, but student safety will not be a cause for concern. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we work to complete this project and rest assured that we are working hard to ensure your children will enjoy a safe transition back to school.</div><div><br></div><div>Parking on site will be limited, and there may be some delays in the Kiss'n'Ride area. Families are asked to do what you can to either walk/bike to school, carpool or park on a nearby side-road. </div><div><br></div><div>Some entry doors will also need to change to begin the year. The primary door at the northwest corner of the school (end of the bus loop) will only be used for emergency evacuation until construction is complete. Families accustomed to accessing the schoolyard from the adjacent gate will need to move further south and enter the yard near the main parking area. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.</div><div><br></div><div>Additional information about first day entry and a parking lot routine reminder will be sent to families by email later this week. ​</div><div><br>​</div>
