Outside Recess

It’s that time of year when we need to remind student to make sure they have appropriate clothing for recess. The district policy states students will be going outside for recess if the temperature and the wind chill are above 20 degrees. We have extra coats, hats, and gloves for students in need. Please contact the front office if you need assistance.


Students must go outside unless we have a doctor statement.

Classroom Visits

In an effort to keep all children safe, anyone wanting to visit the classroom, have lunch with a

child, and/or go on field trips must come to the school office to complete a background check.

Please bring ID at that time. Classroom visits are limited to 15 min. throughout the day. During those 15 min., parents are not able to talk with teachers. We do not want to interrupt class time. If you would like to meet with the teacher, schedule a meeting with the teacher prior to your visiting the school.
