Winter Weather Reminders
Students will have OUTDOOR recess unless the temperature (including wind-chill) is below 10 degrees. The temperature is monitored each morning and before lunch from multiple data points. Children will go out if the temperature is above 10 degrees. Please send appropriate outdoor clothing including hats and mittens with your child to school.
If students wish to play in the snow, they must wear BOTH snow pants and boots. If students are not wearing snow pants and boots, they are required to stay on our blacktop surface of the playground for the lunchtime and classroom recess periods.
Students are not allowed to throw snowballs, slide on ice or play other games where student safety may be compromised.
ALL students regardless of age or grade share snow forts. Children may add to the fort, but not destroy the fort.
It is a great idea to keep an extra pair of socks, hat and gloves or mittens in your child’s backpack. Students have a great time playing in the snow when appropriately dressed and following these guidelines.

Your child should be kept home from school if they are displaying any symptoms of strep throat, until they have seen a physician. Please contact the Health Office with any questions.
