Winter Weather Tips

Winter weather is upon us. Please be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather with hat and gloves. We will go outside for recess if the temperature is 20 degrees or above. If you are in need of a winter coat, we have free coats available in the office. As the weather changes we are entering cold and flu season. Please be sure to remind your child to use good hand washing techniques; use warm water and soap to kill the germs, but be sure you don't rush. You need to try to wash your hands for 20 seconds. Sing "Happy Birthday" or recite the ABC's twice.

Winter Break December 19- January 3
