Cold weather

As we enter this season of cold weather, remember that it is important that your child is here is every day. The condition of the playground determines if students can play outside or not.  We do not determine this by temperature.  For this reason, students should ALWAYS come prepared to play outside with proper coats, hats, mittens and boots when the weather is cold. If the weather does not allow for outside play, we may stay inside for recess in the morning and at lunch time.  If school is to be closed due to inclement weather, the best place to look is on the Denver Public Schools website – http://www.dpsk12.org.

Family Survey

Please complete the survey you will find in this week’s Thursday folder regarding ideas for improving the safety of student dismissal and best days/times for monthly parent meetings.  Please return one survey per family to your child’s teacher by Monday, January 8.  Thank you for your feedback!
