Cold Weather and Recess!

Parents please note that 6th grade will be going outside during the winter if the temperature is above 32 degrees. This means that students will need to bring their jackets, hats, gloves and scarves everyday with them. Students should also be dressing appropriately for winter. Unfortunately the 6th grade rooms are not very predictable with the temperature. One day it may be very cold and the next day extremely warm. Layers are the best options at this time.

Inclement Weather Information!


Follow these suggestions:

1. Connect messages will be sent to your primary phone number.

2. Watch T.V., listen to the radio and/or check the Catawba County web page:


3. Announcements will be made in late evening or early morning.

4. Delayed openings are used when warmer weather is predicted.

5. No announcement means school as usual.

6. The school will follow the instructions provided by parents on the inclement weather sheet for your child’s transportation.

THERE WILL BE NO AFTER-SCHOOL CARE ON DAYS WHEN SCHOOL IS DISMISSED FOR BAD WEATHER. If the school has not received special instructions from you, the child will be dismissed as usual (car or bus). We do not have phone lines to support individual calls so parents must make plans other than to be called. If your plans change during the year, please let the homeroom teacher know as soon as possible.
