---------------- Field Day --------------- ---------- Thursday, May 16th ---------

Parents and Families of Upchurch,

I wanted to send a message regarding Field Day which is this Thursday. It is supposed to be a beautiful day, but also very warm.

1. The Field Day schedule is as follows:

  • Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades: 9:00-11:30
  • 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades: 1:00-3:30

2. Please make sure your child is wearing shoes and socks as well as protective, cool clothing to help them be at their best while being safe! It is essential that you put sunscreen on your child prior to coming to school. You are also welcome to have your child bring extra sunscreen, but they must apply it themselves. Sunscreen will not be provided by the school and cannot be shared with other students. It is preferred students do not bring spray sunscreen, unless directly applied by the parent. Items such as a baseball hat, sunglasses are allowed and a name labeled water bottle will be a must!! We will have coolers for refilling outside during the event.

3. For school lunch, students will choose from 2 sack lunch options (Ham and Cheese Sub or Cheese Sandwich) and will eat picnic style in the commons/lunch area. As always, students are welcome to bring a lunch from home. Due to spacing, we are asking families to plan on joining their child for lunch at the All School Picnic, and refrain from eating with their child inside on Field Day.

4. If you are a parent that signed up for volunteering at the morning Field Day or the afternoon Field Day, thank you very much for giving your time and supporting Upchurch! I will be emailing you directly regarding details in the coming days, however please report the fields at 8:50 rather than coming into the building!
