A Look Back
That sums up the weather this time of year. Temperatures are dropping and before we know it, many white flakes will be falling from the sky. Please remember to dress your child for the frigid weather! Think of it this way, if you had to stand outside for thirty minutes in the same clothes your child is wearing to school, would you be warm enough?
It’s also a good idea to put an extra pair of socks and gloves in their backpacks in a Ziploc baggie. That way if their socks or gloves get soaked on the way to school or at recess, they can change and be comfortable during class or at recess later in the day. Also, please label all of their winter clothing. It makes things much easier at recess and dismissal. When items are labeled, the infamous “Hey, that’s mine”, can be easily remedied.
School Delay Information
SCHOOL-School normally starts at 8:45 a.m. When there is a delay, schools starts two hours later at 10:45 a.m. Students do NOT stay two hours later when there is a delay. If a delay occurs on a Wednesday, we go with a normal schedule and start at 10:45.
BUSES-Your child’s bus will come two hours after it would normally come. Example: Your child’s bus comes at 8:10 a.m. When there is a two hour delay, it would come at 10:10 a.m. If a delay occurs on a Wednesday, we go with a normal schedule so it would still come at 10:10 a.m.
WALKERS & CAR RIDERS: If your child is a walker, he or she should walk to school two hours later than they normally would. If you drive your child to school, just leave exactly two hours later than you would normally leave. When there is a delay, supervision is provided on the school porch for walkers and riders starting at 10:20 a.m.
LUNCH-Lunch is served at the normal time. The lovely lunch ladies estimate what they need and start making it before your child even arrives! Gosh, they’re good!
ACTIVITIES-All BEFORE school activities are CANCELLED for that day when there is a delay. After school activities will take place as usual.
