School will reopen on Monday, January 3rd following the holiday break. During the week of vacation, the building will be closed. You may leave messages on the school’s voice mail or on my web page (email@example.com). I will be checking my emails periodically during the vacation.
It’s hard to believe but winter weather is just around the corner. If there is a delayed opening because of inclimate weather, school will begin according to the delayed time. For example, if there is a 2-hour delay, classes will begin at 10:15 with playground supervision beginning at 9:55. Buses will pick students up according to delayed time. Breakfast will not be available when school opening is delayed. By the time students arrive, our kitchen staff is already preparing lunch, which will be served just over an hour after the children arrive.
Children should always dress for the weather because they go outside for recess unless the weather is inclement. Children benefit greatly from a few minutes of fresh air and sunshine, even if they just stand next to the building. Clothes worn to school must be worn outside during recess, i.e., coats and boots. The teacher on duty will determine if the weather is favorable for outdoor recess. However, recess is usually indoors when the windchill is below twenty degrees.
NO SCHOOL REMINDER
In honor of Martin Luther King Day, there will be no school on Monday, January 17th.
