NO PETS ON SCHOOL GROUNDS PLEASE!
As the summer winds down and we're spending the last of our "good weather days" outside, it's tempting to bring our pets along with us to pick up kids from school. But please be advised that it's against Janesville City Ordinances to have a "dog, horse, cat or other animal pet on any playground or school ground at any time... This regulation applies whether the pet is running at large or is on a leash, or otherwise under the control of any person." Please help us keep our students (and their parents!) feeling safe, secure and comfortable while at school. We appreciate your support in this matter!
