  • As the temperature drops, it's important to remember that kids will need coats, hats and gloves when they come to school. We have a 30 minute recess outside every day unless the temperature or wind chill drops below 20 degrees.  This time of year temperatures can be unpredictable, so dressing in layers is preferable.  Thank you for helping us to keep your child comfortable during the school day.
