Other Bits of Information
Arrival and Dismissal: With all of the snow, student arrivals and dismissals have been going smoothly. Thank you for having your children prepared to get out of the car, pulling your vehicles all the way up, and having students get out along the entire sidewalk. This makes drop off quicker and safer, especially for the students and the traffic on Sowams Rd.
Recess: Students have been having a fun time at recess. We do go outside everyday unless it is bitterly cold. Please continue to make sure you send your children in with outdoor gear for recess. Students who have snow pants and boots can play in the snow; others will play on the hardtop. Currently, recess takes place in the front of the school.
Extended Day: The PTO’s Extended Day will begin after February vacation. If you are interested in facilitating a class (you get paid for this from the PTO), please contact Meg Raffa at firstname.lastname@example.org. Classes take place on either Tuesday or Thursday for an hour after school.
