A Columbian Elementary Bulletin - 12.7.15

Winter Weather

Just a few reminders as we enter the cold weather season:


- Please remind your students to wear coats to school. Also encourage gloves, hats and scarves if they have them.


- Do NOT send students outside if the wind chill is below 32. Use this link to check the wind chill: http://weather.weatherbug.com/forecasts/now/carthage- mo-64836


- We do not want to punish students for not wearing coats. If you have a student that does not wear a coat, they can stand/sit outside blocked by the wind on the south wall of the school. Or you can check with Andrea to see if she has a coat that the student can borrow.


- You may find that a little fresh air and a chance to burn off some energy will be beneficial to your students.
