Mitten Tree

Help a family in need and take part in our annual mitten tree. Each mitten on the tree will have an item listed on the back. To donate, come grab a mitten (or two!), buy the item requested on the back, wrap it, and bring it back to school. Please attach the mitten from the tree to the wrapped gift. We appreciate your help and support during the holiday season.

Playground/Outside And Inclement Weather

Cold weather is here and with it comes the chance of inclement weather. With the weather changing, please be aware of our policies when it comes to children being outside. We will be going outside for recess or lining up in the morning outside if the temperature (actual, feels like, and wind chill) is above 10 degrees. We will make every attempt to use the playground for recess. If children are not well enough to play outside, they are usually not well enough to be in school. We require a physician’s excuse or a note from a parent if a child is to remain indoors during recess. The note should state the reason for the request.

We encourage students to dress appropriately for the weather. During wet, snowy weather, we will ask students who do not adequately dress for the conditions (outdoor boots, snow pants, etc.) to remain on the hard surfaced play area for recess. Please contact the office with any questions or concerns.
