Greetings from Gail

We were spared any snow from this latest Nor'easter but the cold weather is definitely here! When the weather turns cold it always brings up questions about dressing for outdoor recess.

 Recess is an important part of our school day and our students need healthy playtime outdoors. To enjoy it they must be properly dressed for the weather. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for this cold weather.

sme11092012If we are experiencing unusually cold weather where the temperature is in the single digits or it is raining, we will usually not go out for morning or afternoon recess. However, students do go out for recess when the temperature is above 10 degrees.

So far we haven't had any snow, but we know it is coming! Please make sure your child has a coat, gloves and hat for recess and snow pants and boots when the snow arrives. Dressing for outdoor weather allows them to enjoy this fun part of their day. If they don't have boots and there is snow on the ground, they will still go outside and have to stand in an area with no snow by the building. It is much more fun to run and play in the snow.

Delayed Openings

Last Tuesday we had an unexpected school delay as Hurricane Sandy blew through New Hampshire and Vermont. Thankfully
we made it through the storm with only minor damage. If the weather is bad and school has not been cancelled, we may have up to a two-hour delay. In this case, bus arrival times will be delayed two hours. If the bus usually arrives at 7:00 a.m., it will come at 9:00. All schools that normally start at 8:00 will begin two hours later at 10:00. Students should not be dropped off at school before 9:30 for a 10:00 start. When we have a delay, please note that breakfast will NOT be served.

 On inclement weather days, listen to the radio, check our website, or wait for the Alert Now call for more information. Thank you for your patience as we review and revise our storm procedures.
