We hope your Thanksgiving break was wonderful! We have three full weeks of school until our Winter Recess begins, and we’re looking forward to some fun activities this coming month. Be sure to look at the Upcoming dates for a list of activities.
Our inside recess policy is to follow the temperature, wind chill factor, and air quality index. If the temperature is 22 degrees or less—or the wind chill makes it feel like that temperature—it is an inside day. Or if the air quality index shows in the red, we call for an inside day. Please be sure your students are dressed for the winter weather as we try to go outside whenever we can. Thanks
Lost and Found
We have quite a few items in our lost and found. We will hold on to these until the winter recess and then donate them. Please remind your student to look through them during their lunch time. All lost and found items are kept in our cafeteria. Thanks!
