Cooler Weather Is Here!
Children will be sent outside for recess when the temperature is 20 degrees Fahrenheit or above, including the wind chill, and playground conditions permit safe play. During winter, hats, gloves, and scarves are expected. All students go outside for recess on outside recess days. In rare instances where students with asthma or those returning from a serious illness need to remain inside during recess, these students are permitted to stay in the office if they have a parent note. If a child needs to stay in for more than two days, a doctor's note is required.

Car Rider Reminder
For the safety of students and staff, all adults must remain in their vehicles during pick up and drop off. During drop-off, please have students ready to exit the vehicle when it is their turn (coats on, backpacks packed, etc). At pick up, if your student needs to be buckled into a car seat and is unable to do so themselves, please pull into the main parking lot after the car rider line is dismissed and buckle your student in at that time.
