HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We hope you all have had a wonderful start to the New Year! It's been great to see all the students back in school over the last two weeks. They have been doing a tremendous job of getting back to creating, discovering, and exploring their curiosity. Have a great long weekend and we'll see everyone on Tuesday.

OUTDOOR WINTER RECESS GUIDELINES

It is our goal here at Ivy Hill to get our students outside for recess as much as possible. Sometimes however, Mother Nature does not cooperate! Here are our guidelines for Winter Outdoor Recess:


  • Students MUST wear snow pants, coat, boots, hat and gloves to be able to play in the snow.
  • Students that do not have snow gear can play on the blacktop area and playground.
  • Students may not throw snow or ice!
  • Students will have Indoor Recess when temperatures are at or below 0 degrees with the wind chill.
  • Most families find it easiest to put all snow gear into a large, plastic shopping bag so that the kids can keep it all together and change when needed. Again, please put your child's name on all outer wear!

  • Please talk to you kids about our snow guidelines and make sure they have their snow gear each day!
