Cold weather is here so please remember to send your children to school with gloves, hats, scarfs, boots, etc. to keep them warm when they are out on the playground. The district guidelines for indoor recess and arrival/dismissal is:
•below 10 degrees or chill factor of 10 degrees or below
•Hazardous (ice or large amounts of snow) conditions on the playground
Remember that gym shoes are needed in order for children to participate. In years past we have had injuries due to children wearing snow boots to gym.
Please remember that the parking lot by the front entrance is used for dropping off or picking up your children. If your child arrives after staff members are already inside (8:30), then a parent must escort their child in to sign them in late.
In addition, please take note that we have two parking lots which are used for different purposes. Staff members and buses use the first parking lot and the second is used for parents and car riders. If you are picking up your child from school be sure to park in the correct lot so that buses can exit without disruption. Any changes in transportation need to be reported to the office and classroom teachers by 2:20 unless there is an emergency.
We are pleased to have Miles of Smiles Dental Clinic coming to our school this year on January 29th and 30th. The dental clinic is open to all students who return a signed permission form.
