     Please check the weather daily and send appropriate clothing for outdoor recess.

    Children will be able to go outside if dressed appropriately for the weather.

    We will remain inside if the temperature dips. 

    Students may bring items from home for indoor recess.

    They will be asked to keep these items in their backpacks until and after recess.
