Halloween Safety Tips: Plan out route in advance/ Wear well-fitting shoes/ Avoid costumes that drag on the ground/ Children masks should allow for full visibility and breathing/Trick or treaters should be accompanied by an adult/ Candy should not be eaten unless checked by an adult/ Establish a time limit.  These are just a sample of helpful safety tips.  Remember safety first and have fun!

The children will go outside everyday for recess as the weather permits.  Please dress children appropriately for any kind of weather condition as well as for the use of our playground equipment, for example: appropriate footwear.  Our goal is to keep students safe and comfortable during this important time in their school day.
