Winter playground reminders

Please send warm boots and snow pants to school with your children in addition to a warm coat, hat or earmuffs and waterproof gloves. Students go outside for recess unless the wind chill or temperature is below zero degrees.

Snowy playground guidelines:

  • Boots and snow pants are required if the student wants to play in the snow.
  • If the student stays on the blacktop and out of the snow, only boots are required.

Please arrive on time ready to learn

When students arrive to their classrooms between 8:40-8:45 a.m., it gives them time to unpack backpacks, make lunch selections, AND be seated and ready to learn by 8:50 a.m. Most students arrive by bus each morning and are on time for class.

Students who are dropped off in the morning instead of riding the bus, should follow the same guidelines as students who arrive by bus and be seated and ready to learn by 8:50 a.m. Arrivals after 8:50 a.m. cause disruption to a child’s morning routine. We recommend that students be dropped off no later than 8:40 a.m. each day.

Parents, we also ask that if you arrive to school prior to 8:30 a.m., please do not drop off students in front of school until you see adult supervision present.
