WINTER and WET CONDITIONS UPDATE!

Dear Parents,

Please note that students may or may not be outside during morning or lunch recess depending on playground conditions, as well as other events.  However, students must be prepared for time outside, as it is important during winter months and for their general health that students get fresh air.  Students also travel between buildings for gym, church and assemblies.  Parents should ensure their child is adequately prepared with proper winter and rain attire and proper footwear.  As there is still some snow and rain falls this week, students will be allowed to enter the school at 8:35 am for this week only.  We will assess the weather conditions and inform of further procedures and entry times.  OLS takes every precaution to ensure student safety.  Our playground and school areas have more than adequate supervision.  However, tripping or falling accidents may happen at anytime and we ask all students to slow down when playing outside especially when it’s cold.  If any parents wish to volunteer for additional morning or afterschool supervision, please call the office, as we are always grateful for more volunteers to help supervise the play areas.  Please note parents are asked not to keep students on the playground afterschool and clear the lot as soon as possible.  Remember parents are not allowed to park in the drop-off zones in the morning, and must not take more than 5 minutes to allow students to enter the yard.  Supervisors will guide the students indoors after 8:35am.  Parents (except for Kindergarten) are not allowed to enter the school unless arrangements are made with the school office.

Thank you for your diligence.
