Outdoor Recess Guidelines

Well, we had snow this week, please make sure your child has the proper clothing to go outside. We will go outside when it is cold and snowing. Our guidelines for cold temperatures will be followed and monitored closely. The temperature for outdoor recess is 20 degrees with the windchill.

Please make sure student have appropriate gear to be in the elements. Winter coats, gloves, hats are important. Students should have hats, gloves, winter coats, boots if it is snowing.

Drop Off's in the morning

As the weather starts to turn colder, I want to remind families that our building doesn't open up until 7:30 each morning. When dropping kids off prior to 7:30, please make sure they have appropriate gear to be outside in cold weather. Thank you

Ice Skating Reward

Monday, November 4th, 4th & 5th graders who made honor roll and merit roll participated in a reward day ice skating. They had a great time, laughing and making great memories.
