Cold Weather Gear
We’ve had some cold weather already and I want to remind you to make sure to send your child to school with appropriate winter clothing. Fresh air and outside play are a big part of our day and help to contribute to student success. Barring severe weather, our students will be going outside for recess.
What do we consider appropriate clothing?
Grades K-4 - In order to play in the snow students need boots and snow pants. A coat, hat, and gloves are a given. In addition to boots they should have other shoes to wear inside of the school.
Grades 5 and 6 - Boots and snow pants are recommended but not required to play in the snow. Once again, a coat, hat, and gloves are expected.
It is recommended that you write your child’s name in every piece of winter gear - from the boots on the bottom to the hat on the top and everything in between. It is incredible how many valuable articles of clothing end up in Lost and Found each week.
If our school needs to be closed we will continue to provide breakfasts and lunches for all of our students. We do not want any of our learners to go hungry.

Hot Food Option - You have the option of ordering hot lunch on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
The food served will follow the elementary school menu (above).
You must call the front office by 9:45am on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday or complete the order form below. If you know you will want this three days a week please tell Mrs. Marinkovski so you won’t have to call in on those days.

You will also be given bagged breakfasts and lunches to cover until the next day lunch can be ordered.
