Dogs on School Property

As a friendly reminder, dogs are not allowed on school grounds. While I love seeing everyone's beautiful dogs, there are students who are allergic to dogs and also students that are very afraid of dogs. If you must bring your dog to pick up, please arrange a meeting spot with your child on the corner away from those being dismissed. Thank you for your support!

Valentines Day

All students will participate in a class party to celebrate Valentines Day the last hour of the school day. Students will engage in interactive, fun activities. Thank you to Room Parents for helping host class parties.

As a reminder, per district 15 guidelines, food and candy is not allowed. If you would like to send your child with valentine cards to exchange, please feel free to do so and make sure there is one for every child in the classroom.

We kindly ask that you refrain from sending large stuffed animals and balloons or gifts for students as this can cause a disruption to the learning environment.

We look forward to providing some extra fun for all students.

Online registration through Infinite Campus is OPEN. EVERY student; new and returning, must register each year. It is extremely important that all families register as soon as possible and do not wait until the summer. Our staffing needs are determined by the number of students registered each year. Waiting to register right before school begins can cause changes to classes, changes in staffing and the need to re-section classes in order to balance classes. We kindly ask you to register as soon as possible. Thank you for your support!

Winter Gear for Recess

We kindly ask that you talk with your child to ensure they are leaving home with appropriate winter gear. All students are required to go outside for recess. Exceptions are made only when a child brings a doctor's note excusing him/her from outdoor recess.Please see our district-wide outdoor procedures below. If your child is in need of a winter jacket, please send me an email at

  • 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.

En espanol Recess

Los estudiantes generalmente salen al recreo todos los días, por lo que deben vestirse adecuadamente por el clima. Solo se hacen excepciones cuando un niño/a trae una nota del médico que lo excusa del recreo al aire libre.

Los miembros del personal proporcionan supervisión en el patio de recreo. Si los estudiantes no siguen las expectativas de comportamiento, un miembro del personal abordará el comportamiento con el/los estudiante/s. Según el comportamiento, el niño/a será enviado a hablar con un administrador.

Clima frío: El recreo interior se determina según las siguientes pautas:

  • Si la temperatura exterior, junto con la sensación térmica, es inferior a 0°F, todos los estudiantes permanecerán adentro durante toda la hora del almuerzo.

  • Si la temperatura exterior, junto con la sensación térmica, está entre 0°-10° F, el procedimiento preferido es una rotación de 20 minutos para el almuerzo, un recreo al aire libre de 20 minutos y un recreo interior de 20 minutos. Sin embargo, a discreción del director, los estudiantes pueden permanecer adentro durante toda la hora del almuerzo.

  • Si la temperatura exterior, junto con la sensación térmica, es superior a 10°F, los estudiantes tendrán un recreo regular al aire libre.
