Note all field day volunteers assisting with activity stations must have a CORI on file.
Field Day Lunch:
Parents & family members can bring their own lunch and a blanket and enjoy lunch with your child or children for a picnic on the back play yard. Families who are only coming with their own lunch do not have to have a CORI done. If children do not have a family member at school he or she will be asked to stay in the café for lunch.
Let’s plan for good weather!
If it is raining we will have to cancel field day.
