Brrrr! Chilly weather ahead

We would like to remind parents that as a rule of thumb, we will have outdoor arrival and recess unless the temperature drops below 20 degrees F real feel.  We use the weather site accuweather.com to monitor and make a determination regarding indoor or outdoor recess.

Boots, hats, socks and mittens or gloves and possibly snowpants are necessary for outdoor play.  Children who are not dressed appropriately may have to spend recess inside.

Please remember to make sure your child brings sneakers to change into for physical education and shoes or sneakers for classroom activities.

Reminder from the School Nurse

Students receiving antibiotics for a contagious condition such as strep throat must stay out of school until 24 hours of antibiotic therapy has been completed. Excessive coughing and nasal discharge and generally not feeling well are indications that the child should remain home.

If your child has a temperature of 100 degrees or above (taken orally) in the morning, it is recommended that (s) he remain home. Students should remain home for 24 hours after a fever has subsided without the use of fever-reducing medication such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Motrin). If your child develops a fever during school hours, they will not be allowed to return to the classroom and will remain in the health office until dismissed to a parent/guardian or their designee.
