INCLEMENT WEATHER~RAINING/FREEZING
When the weather is inclement (raining/freezing) students will be indoors for morning lineup. Please remember that all students should have 2-3 just right books in their backpack to read EVERYDAY!
 
Also, during cold or inclement weather 1st  and 2nd Graders will be dismissed in the cafeteria, 3rd Graders are dismissed from assigned stairwells.  Families picking up 3rd Graders are strongly urged to report to their assigned door via the small yard.  It becomes a safety hazard when adults are waiting in the 3rd grade stairwells. 4th Graders and up are dismissed from their regular dismissal areas.

         We need your cooperation in ensuring SAFETY always!!
