Message from the Principal
Thank you to our PTA for hosting our first Dine and Donate at Comet. Thank you to all families that were able to attend.
We have had another successful and fun filled week! Our students participated in a week full of safety activities and our students surpassed all expectations!
Our students worked hard to meet our monthly behavior goal! We are so excited and proud of all students! Today, we celebrated our success through our Cougar Rally. Next week on September 30th, all students and staff will celebrate through a special dress day- Favorite Sports Team day! This was an idea generated by our students and we hope to see all students participate! In addition, all classrooms will visit our school store to purchase items using the Paws they've earned through stellar behavior.
Please let your child(ren) know how proud you are of the hard work they are doing every day at school!

Outdoor Recess District Procedures
There have been some questions regarding cold weather procedures for recess. We are hoping to have a few more months of beautiful weather and this to be an FYI. Please see our district-wide outdoor procedures below. If your child is in need of a winter jacket, please send me an email; firstname.lastname@example.org
Students generally go outside for recess every day, so they should dress appropriately for the weather. Exceptions are made only when a child brings a doctor's note excusing him/her from outdoor recess.
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.
Warm weather: Students will be outside for recess/PE if the temperature (or heat index) is below 100 degrees. Students will be inside for recess/PE if the temperature (or heat index) is 100 degrees or above.
Other considerations in which indoor recess is allowed include the condition of the playground and the presence of precipitation.
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.
Tiempo de calor: Los estudiantes estarán afuera para el recreo/PE si la temperatura (o el índice de calor) es inferior a 100 grados. Los estudiantes estarán adentro para el recreo/PE si la temperatura (o el índice de calor) es de 100 grados o más.
Otras consideraciones en las que se permite el recreo interior incluyen la condición del patio de recreo y la presencia de precipitaciones.
Para el recreo en interiores, los estudiantes son supervisados en sus aulas.
oor recess, students are supervised in their classrooms.
