A Note from Mrs. Shostachuk 12/04/2022

Dear Central Road Families:

It is hard to believe that the festive holiday season is already upon us. Both students and staff jumped right back into teaching and learning this week. It is always great to see how we are able to do so pretty smoothly. While visiting classrooms this past week, it was lovely to connect with & witness the day to day happenings. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out for support and/or clarification. We look forward to welcoming back students on Monday, December 5th.

Recess & Cold Weather Guidelines

  • Students generally go outside for recess every day, so they should dress appropriately for the weather. Exceptions are made only when a child brings a doctor's note excusing him/her from outdoor recess.

  • Staff members provide playground supervision. If students are not following behavior expectations, a staff member will address the behavior with the student(s). Based on the behavior, the child may speak to an administrator.

    Cold weather: Indoor recess is determined based on the following guidelines:

    • If the temperature outside, together with the wind chill, is below 0°F, all students will remain inside for the entire lunch hour.
    • If the temperature outside, together with the wind chill, is between 0°-10°F, the preferred procedure is a rotation of 20 minutes for lunch, a 20-minute outdoor recess, and a 20-minute indoor recess. However, at the principal's discretion, students may be kept inside for the entire lunch hour.
    • If the temperature outside, together with the wind chill, is above 10°F, students will have regular outdoor recess.
    • Please let us know if you have any questions related to our recess guidelines.

Spelling Bee Information

The Spelling Bee is right around the corner. Students in grade 4th-6th will participate in classroom spelling bees the week of November 28th. One classroom winner will be identified to participate in the school spelling bee that is taking place on Wednesday, December 14th. Parents or Guardians of the winners will be invited to come in person, if they wish, to watch the spelling bee. We ask there is a maximum of two guests per winner to attend the event. There will be no virtual option this school year. Please reach out to Mrs. Green or your child's classroom teacher if you have any questions.
