Since there is so much rain in NW Oregon, we try to have recess rain or shine! We do have an under cover area, but it is inevitable that someone will run through a puddle or decide the temptation of the new playground is worth getting wet. Umbrellas are not conducive to recess play, so they will stay inside.
If you do not want your child to go out to recess, please send notes. Otherwise, please send appropriate layers and a change of socks for that backpack.

SERVICES OFFERED FOR TALENTED AND GIFTED (TAG) STUDENTS
Parents are welcome to refer their child for services designed for students identified as talented and gifted. Students who score at or above the 97th percentile on a nationally standardized, norm-referenced test of overall reading or math or on a mental abilities test, and have other confirming evidence that they learn at a rapid rate and advanced level, are identified as TAG students.
