We have had very mild days of fall weather so far this school year and this has allowed us to have an extended season of recess ball field use for kick ball, soccer, baseball and football. BUT…it sounds like the forecast for the upcoming week is more typical for November with rain, winds and possibly some snow showers by week’s end.
We would like all children to be properly dressed for recess with hats, gloves/mittens and winter jacket. Once the snow arrives, boots are a MUST!
I hope you are aware through the blog updates that we have a very contagious stomach virus moving through our school. The onset is quite rapid with reported symptoms of a headache and/or yucky tummy. The vomiting hits quickly. When one child in a classroom gets sick, in short order others are sick as well.
We are cleaning surfaces as often as we can throughout the day and reminding EVERYONE to wash their hands frequently. If you child becomes sick, please keep him/her home for at least 24 hours to help us prevent the spreading of this intestinal issue. Thank you for your help!
A snapshot of the week ahead is below. Remember to check your child’s class blog for more specific grade/class events.
