Cold Weather and Recess Reminder

Today was our first day of the school year with very cold weather, and many students were unprepared to be outside in the cold. Students will be outside for recess every day unless it is raining or extremely cold at their recess time. Please make sure your child has appropriate outdoor clothing at school every day.
