Hat and Hoods:

Beginning in January, students will not be allowed to wear hats or hoods in school.  Students can wear hoodies to school but they will need to keep the hood down when they are inside the building.  Unfortunately, this issue has started to impact academics and is also increasing discipline issues.

Outdoor Recess During Winter:

Please make sure you check the weather every morning with your child and have them dress for the weather. It is that time of the year in Ohio that the weather changes drastically from hour to hour. Students will go outside to recess if the temperature is above 20 degrees with the windchill. When there is snow on the ground we ask students to stay on the black top unless they have snow pants or two pairs of pants and snow boots. This is to prevent students from having to sit in wet clothes all day. Please go over these expectations with your child. We will not be calling home for a change of clothes. If you feel it is necessary, you can send a change of clothes to school with your child.
