Winter Attire

As we return in January, please ensure that your child has the appropriate winter attire.  Students must wear boots from the first snowfall until all of the snow is melted. That means that students must change into outside weather boots before going outside. If they do not have boots, they may be asked to stand or stay in a designated area.

Students must wear snow pants and mittens, in addition to boots, to play in the snow. If they do not have snow pants, boots and mittens, they MUST stay on the visible blacktop or in the designated area.

Please remember that the district policy states that students go outside for recess unless the temperature is below 10 degrees or when the wind chill is below zero. When they do not have the proper clothes, students still go outside but are not allowed to play on the equipment or on the field. Parents will be informed when boots and snow pants are no longer needed.

Happy Birthday Dr. King

On Monday, January 18th we honor Dr. King and his civil rights work for racial equality in our country. His leadership was essential in ending segregation in the south and other parts of the United States. Dr. King is famous for many aspects of the civil rights movement but his I Have a Dream speech is one of the most powerful speeches he ever made.
