Guidelines for Winter Weather Recess

All students must wear snow pants and boots if they want to play in the snow.  If students do not have boots they will be asked to stay on the shoveled areas of the track and blacktop.  


We keep in mind district suggested guidelines for determining WHEN students go outside for recess, etc.  If falling snow is very wet or the playground is very icy, the supervisor on duty will decide whether students should come indoors.

Temperature guidelines that we follow are:

  • If 10 degrees or below – STAY IN
  • If wind chill is 0 or below – STAY IN

No Parking Areas/Parking Lot Safety

As the weather gets colder (and snowier) we ask parents/caregivers to be extra patient when dropping off and picking up students from school.   Please DO NOT park in the No Parking zones.  These zones are located on Viola Av around the cross walk on both sides of the street.  Cones were put out during the 1st month of school to make families aware of the no parking areas.  There is also a No Parking area on Linwood Av along the playground where our school buses park.   

Please make sure that all the people who pick up or drop off your child are aware of our parking / drop off / pick up procedures.   We have at least 20 feet of No Parking area on both sides of the cross walk so that drivers have the correct amount of time to stop when they see a student waiting to cross the road.

Office Notes:

  • The school building has some new safety precautions this year.  All visitors will be asked to stay in the lobby until they are greeted by the office by using the intercom system.  If you have something to drop off, we ask that you label it with the child's name and set it on the counter in the lobby.  We will be out to collect it as soon as we are able and get it to your child.  
  • Students need to be in their seats at 7:45am.  Please try to get your child here around 7:30am so they can line up and walk in with their classmates.
  • We have started a lost and found.  If your child is missing an item they can come to the office and ask.
