Severe Weather!

Please go to our board website to review our ‘Severe Weather Policy.’  As per our AP Memo on Extreme Cold Days, we will follow the protocol that states any temperatures below -15 up to -19 F degrees we will allow students to be outside for no more than a 20 minute period of time.  From -20 F  and colder, students will be kept indoors.  Winters in our area bring a variety of temperatures and conditions: please ensure your children have proper clothing for cold weather to prevent a prolonged exposure for their skin to be in direct contact with the cold air and varied conditions.  Fresh air is good for children and we will continue to encourage time spent outdoors as much as possible during our colder months.


Reminder about Yard Supervison:  Yard supervision begins at 8:45 am children should not arrive at school prior to 8:45 am.

School closures and bus cancellations:   Just a reminder as the winter weather approaches please remember to check the website along with listen to your local radio station for any closures or bus cancellation.   If busses are cancelled and your child is a bus student you do not need to call in their absence.  If the busses are cancelled in the morning please note the busses are also cancelled at the end of the day, so if you decide to drive your child to school please make sure they are aware you will be picking them up and where your meeting place is
