WINTER WEATHER REMINDERS
PLEASE BRING ALL YOUR WINTER GEAR EVERYDAY! BOOTS, HATS, MITTENS EVEN SNOWPANTS. WE LINE UP OUTSIDE IN MORNING AND GO OUTSIDE FOR RECESS EVERYDAY!
We do have temperature guidelines that are used to make decisions if it is safe for kids to go outside for recess.
*****When the temperature is below 0, we stay inside*****
***** If the wind chill is -10 or below, we stay inside.*****
Please help us prevent your child from losing their gear by labeling jacket, snow pants, boots, even hats/mittens with your childs name or initials. If you are having difficulty providing warm, winter items for child, please call us @ 651-748-6700 :)

If they are not having breakfast they will line up outside in their respective grade lines.
