From the Principal's Desk

Hello DiPietro Families!

Boy has it been a busy week of learning here at DiPietro. We also had a wonderful All School Meeting in which multiple students were acknowledged for their outstanding model behavior for how we support our fellow students. The meeting highlighted students and the work they have been doing. One of the best parts??? Everyone could hear our students because of our wonderful sound system purchased for us by the Dynamic DiPietro PTO and families that support the fundraisers!!! Thank you.

I have SOME VERY EXCITING NEWS! Mrs. Cavossa and Miss Higgins are teaming up to bring you "Mrs. Cavossa's Bedtime Stories". Click here to read the first book with her. I will be setting up a section in our newsletter with the title of the book as the link so you can pick and choose what you would like to read. If you have the book at home even better....put it in your child's hands so they can follow along! I LOVED this first book. Please read it with her. Thank you!

Let's have a great week!

Indoor Recess Guidelines

Indoor Recess Guidelines

Winter and snow are upon us, perhaps a bit earlier than expected. We prefer to have students go outside for recess whenever possible and will continue to go outside when there is snow on the ground. See below for clothing expectations for playing in the snow.

There will be days when it is not safe or comfortable to have outdoor recess. As general rules, we will have outdoor recess unless (1) the actual temperature is 20’F or below, (2) the “real feel” temperature is 20’F or below, or (3) it is actively precipitating. In addition, we will have indoor recess if we deem the playground unsafe for ice or other reasons.

What to wear to play in the snow and a Request from Nurse Barros

For OUTDOOR RECESS we will use the Rule of 5 when it comes to playing in the snow. All of these items must be on, but can be sent to school in a bag:

1. Hat/hood must be worn.

2. Gloves/Mittens

3. Winter Coat

4. Snow pants

5. Winter boots

Request from Nurse Barros:

Winter is here and the best practice to keep your children safe and warm is to provide snow pants, gloves, and a hat at recess time for your children. When they are playing at recess, they may get wet, so PLEASE pack an extra pair of socks, underwear, pants, and shirt in their backpack in the event that they may need to change after recess/lunch. They can keep these items in their backpacks all year long as a backup if needed. Thank you!
