From the Principal's Desk

Happy New Year DiPietro Families!

Welcome Back to all of our wonderful cherubs! While I did notice some sleepy faces our first day back they soon perked up once they saw their friends and teachers. Hopefully this weekend allows for some catching up on sleep. I know my sons need to do some catching up. Fun times with friends and family lead to a little less sleep....aren't we supposed to be catching up on sleep though? I guess that's not the case with teenagers. ;)

I had so much fun listening to students work on New Year's Resolutions as I walked into classrooms. They were writing school based goals as well as personal goals. One of may favorites, "Help my dad wash the car." To which another student says, "You get to wash the car. Wow!"

REMINDER OF CHANGE: With all the snow and students bringing in snow gear we are changing our morning drop off a little bit to help speed up the process of drop off. Once ALL of the buses have left, and we have enough staff, we will be redirecting drop off to the front of the building. This way several more students can get out of cars and we will have more help. PLEASE, PLEASE make sure that students only get out on the right side of your vehicle AND you do not pass cars that are dropping off children. Students can only be dropped off when staff are present. All staff are supposed to be with students at 8:45 am so if you arrive after 8:45 am please park and bring your child(ren) into the school. Thank you so much.

Let's have a wonderful week!

Your principal,

Mrs. Friedman

Indoor Recess Guidelines

Indoor Recess Guidelines

Winter and snow are upon us, perhaps a bit earlier than expected. We prefer to have students go outside for recess whenever possible and will continue to go outside when there is snow on the ground. See below for clothing expectations for playing in the snow.

There will be days when it is not safe or comfortable to have outdoor recess. As general rules, we will have outdoor recess unless (1) the actual temperature is 20’F or below, (2) the “real feel” temperature is 20’F or below, or (3) it is actively precipitating. In addition, we will have indoor recess if we deem the playground unsafe for ice or other reasons.

What to wear to play in the snow and a Request from Nurse Barros

For OUTDOOR RECESS we will use the Rule of 5 when it comes to playing in the snow. All of these items must be on, but can be sent to school in a bag:

1. Hat/hood must be worn.

2. Gloves/Mittens

3. Winter Coat

4. Snow pants

5. Winter boots

Request from Nurse Barros:

Winter is here and the best practice to keep your children safe and warm is to provide snow pants, gloves, and a hat at recess time for your children. When they are playing at recess, they may get wet, so PLEASE pack an extra pair of socks, underwear, pants, and shirt in their backpack in the event that they may need to change after recess/lunch. They can keep these items in their backpacks all year long as a backup if needed. Thank you!
