The Crissman Connection

December 10, 2021

Last Week of December!

Hi Crissman Families,

I hope this communication finds you doing well. As you have probably heard or read, our calendar has been adjusted for the remainder of the month. December 17th will be a half-day of school (dismissal at 12:24pm) and our last day of school before the Holiday Break.

Using TEAMs- Parents, please talk to your child(ren) about using the TEAMs chat for personal communication. TEAMs is a UCS School Communication Tool, it should not be used for personal chat groups. Anything done in TEAMs can be viewed by the district. If they are using TEAMs to chat about school/assignments, etc. all school rules apply.

Have a wonderful Holiday Break with your family and friends!

Yours Truly,

~Mrs. Papastamatis

Winter Recess Guidelines

Winter Recess

20°F Recess is held outside

15-19°F Wind conditions will determine

14°F or Below: Inside Recess

If temperatures are between 15° and 19°, the

wind chill factor will be considered.

It is important that children dress appropriately: boots, hats, gloves/mittens and a warm coat. All students are expected to participate in recess. Fresh air and physical play help develop fitness and increase children’s ability to focus during learning times. Generally, if a child is well enough to attend school, they are well enough to go outside for a short break and to get some fresh air.

This week's Info...

We are excited to continue Crissman's 12 Days of Holiday Cheer! Student Council set the spirit days for January 3rd and 4th of the New Year!
