Winter weather in Indiana varies and is often unpredictable. Please include this information as part of your winter weather contingency plans.
Early Childhood will be following an alternate schedule in case of two-hour delays this year. PM classes will take place as usual, and AM classes will be shortened. This is different than in recent years, so please take note.
'Tis the Season
Just a reminder ~ as winter is upon us, please be sure that your child is dressed to play outside each day: mittens/gloves, hat, boots (if snow). We go outside until it feels like 15 degrees. We always check the wind chill in case the temperature and winds make it feel terribly cold. Finally, please keep in mind, as illness becomes more prevalent, your child should be symptom-free for 24 hours from the following, before attending/returning to school: fever, diarrhea, infection, vomiting. We want to keep everyone as healthy as possible.
Welcome and Goodbye
On the other hand, Lilly will be leaving us; and we will miss her terribly. We wish her well in her new class. Additionally, Gabriel will be moving to the afternoon class, giving us two Gabriel's in the afternoon.
