Pick Up - Drop Off Procedures

PLEASE take Burkwood Road off of W. Cook Road, go all the way to Redwood Road, turn left, then left again on Charwood Road. This will take you to back parking lot. 
The safety of your child is our top priority at Malabar. To insure your child's safety, we ask that you please display the orange parent pick-up form on the front dash of your car. This allows us to identify that you are permitted to pick up your child. Please ask one of our secretaries for a form when you register your child. 

High Five Matrix

It is an expectation that all students follow the High Five Matrix on a daily basis. The school matrix will be reviewed every Monday throughout the school year. The matrix covers many safety issues and focuses on our goal of RESPECT. Please review the school matrix with your child on a weekly basis. All students will practice and follow the following High Five Matrix
  • Respectful
  • Responsible
  • Ready
  • Safe
  • Proud

The Matrix looks different in each area of the building, please see below for more details.
