    Things To Keep In Mind 

    At Hortons Creek we value and encourage family engagement, and visiting your child during lunch can be a special treat for students and families. However, we do ask that interested parents/guardians utilize the practice sparingly and not make a habit of it. Constant parental presence at school can often inadvertently ostracize your child from other students, weaken their self-confidence in their own abilities, and unknowingly thwart the development of healthy independence and maturity.
