It was too cold!

I agree!  It was too cold this morning to wait outside.  Unfortunately I was out of the district at a meeting this morning, but I did not realize that there wasn't a structure in place to call indoor drop-off when I wasn't present for the start of school.  Please accept my apologies for the red noses and cheeks this morning and know that I have put into place a system so if I am (for any reason) not available to make the determination there are staff with the appropriate information to do so in my absence.

(for those of you interested...)
We will be using the table below as general guidelines to help inform our decision making when it comes to indoor drop off as well as indoor recess.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!
Stay warm,


  1. Will the red flag be out when we're in the yellow zone?

    1. Hi Kristen,
      Great question. The yellow will be a judgment call, as today did at lunch. When it is in yellow we will often try for outside (as they are out for such short periods of time, 15 mins. or less) but if there are other factors (rain, snow, ice, etc.) we may decide to call it indoors.
