Dressing for Weather - Winter is Here

I think it is safe to say that winter is here! Please make sure that your child has the appropriate clothing for recess. We go outside for recess in snow and when it is cold. Please make sure that they have gloves, hats, boots and warm coats. Also, I notice that many of our students have those very thin gloves. Once snow is here and they start to build and have fun in the snow, those gloves get very wet and often don't keep their hands warm.

CoVid Communicating

This year, instead of sending out an email for CoVid cases, we will be updating a slide on our website. Please bookmark this page if interested in keeping tabs of our current cases and associated homerooms. I'll leave this in my weekly updates as well, but I'll gradually move this towards the bottom of the reading material.
