Principal’s Message for January 18, 2019
It looks like winter weather is coming back this weekend! This reminds us of sending students to school dressed for the weather. We do let students play in the snow during lunch if they have their snow gear (boots, snow pants, winter coats, mittens, hats, etc). Please dress your children in the items for school.
Enjoy your extra day off this weekend. As a reminder, there is no school on Monday, January 21st. See you all back on Tuesday.
