George School's Family Update

December 15, 2017

Brrr! Inside Line Up is going well

Inside Line up has been going well! Please note that we will no longer put out the Red Flags each morning, since we will have inside line up for the foreseeable future. (The flags will be going on vacation!) However, if the temperature allows we will still have outside recess, so please dress children for outside play.
