Cold Weather Recess
In this time of cold weather, please be certain your child is
dressed properly for spending time outside for recess. If the
temperature permits, classes will spend all 30 minutes outside. If
the temperature is below freezing, classes may still go outside for
a short time to get some fresh air and then spend the rest of the
time with indoor recess.

SPECIAL NOTE: Students are encouraged to bring lip balm or
petroleum jelly to help with chapped lips and apply hand cream
at home to help with chapped hands.
