Winter Wear Reminder
Now that we are entering the cold winter months we want to remind you to please send your child to school with winter gear. For recess, if the “feels like/wind chill” temperature is below 10° (at 9° or lower) or too rainy and wet, children will remain indoors. We follow weather.com for our forecast each day.
Here are a few suggestions:
Please dress your child appropriately for wet and snowy weather. They will not be allowed to play in the snow or wet equipment without a coat, gloves, hat, and snow pants. Typically, students who are not dressed appropriately will play on the blacktop.
Please label your child’s winter gear.
Consider putting an extra pair of socks and pants in your child’s backpack in case they get wet at recess.
At 3:40pm, if the temperature is below 20° (at 19° or lower) we will dismiss walkers and car pick-ups from the West Gym. We do this because on inclement weather days the car line increases and we want to minimize the number of time students stand stationary outside. Thank you for your patience on these days.
CHARACTER COUNTS! invites students to participate in the 2022 Poster and Video Contest.
Over the years, CHARACTER COUNTS! celebrates and reminds us of our power to do good.
CHARACTER COUNTS! will continue partnering with the local Hero Hustle Run that annually recognizes heroes.
This year’s theme is STEP UP FOR YOUR COMMUNITY. What pillars of character do you see in your community? What are others doing to strengthen our community?
Submission deadline is Friday, December 16, 2022.
