Winter Play at Recess
There is very little hardtop surface to play on and students need room, space, and an area to exercise instead of simply walking around on the blacktop. Students should have the opportunity to have fun in the snow at recess. However, to be able to go into the snow, students MUST have boots, snow pants, gloves, and jackets!
If students choose to play in the snow, we encourage them to wear appropriate clothing to school (snow pants, boots, winter jacket, gloves, hats, etc.) and take advantage of “playing outside” during recess. Throwing snowballs is not allowed during snow play. Please reiterate to your son/daughter the dangers of throwing snow at others.
Students who do not wish to play in the snow or refrain from "snow gear" will be limited to the blacktop during recess.
- Please have your child exit the car on the right side onto the sidewalk. We ask that students do not exit a car on the left side into the driving lane.
- Drop off begins at 8:15am and ends promptly at 8:30am. At 8:30am all of our entrances lock and you will need to park and walk your child into the main office. If you notice there are no staff members outside, that means you need to walk them into the building.
