Cold Weather Clothing
With the weather getting colder, please remember to send appropriate outdoor clothing with your child for recess.  Err on the side of caution when deciding whether or not to send hats, mittens and winter coats with your child.  When the temperature and/or wind chill is at zero degrees or below, students will not go outside for recess and safety patrol will not be on outside duty.  Otherwise, recess will be held as scheduled.  Please remember to label all outdoor clothing with your child's name.

Volunteer Protocol for Classroom Parties
During the school year, there are opportunities to celebrate with classroom parties.  These parties are planned and directed through the PTO and/or homeroom parents.  There is no standard routine for the planned activities, but each building is put in the position of managing the many visitors on the day of the party.

The challenge comes with balancing the safety of the building while trying to create a welcoming environment. 
The following protocol has been agreed on and will be implemented for the upcoming classroom parties:
  • Adults attending the party are expected to complete a criminal background check up to two weeks before the scheduled date of the party and have a completed volunteer form on file with the building.
  • On the day of the party, adults must also bring personal ID so that the Raptor check can be completed and a visitor badge can be issued.
  • It would be greatly appreciated that visitors provide advance notice to their classroom teacher if they intend to attend the party.  Visitor badges may be printed ahead of time to facilitate the process.  There may be a wait for those who have not given prior notice.
Please check with the Northwest Office 965-9680 if you have a question as to whether a background check/volunteer forms are currently on file or if needed.
