Are we going outside? 😨
We have learned that there is a wide variation in temperature (sometimes as great as 10 degrees) depending on what app is checked.  The administration  determined that the temperature will be checked on Accuweather at 8:00am and 11:30am.  If the "real feel" temperature is 10 degrees or less at 8:00a, or 11:30, we will have inside recess. If the "real feel" temperature" is 11 degrees or higher, we will go outside for recess. I hope this eliminates confusion of where to meet me at 8:30/12:00 and how to dress your child for the trip to school.

Hand Foot Mouth Disease is going around 

Link to Mayo Clinic description of Hand Foot Mouth

Hand-foot-and-mouth disease — a mild, contagious viral infection common in young children — is characterized by sores in the mouth and a rash on the hands and feet. Hand-foot-and-mouth disease is most commonly caused by a coxsackievirus.
There's no specific treatment for hand-foot-and-mouth disease. Frequent hand-washing and avoiding close contact with people who are infected with hand-foot-and-mouth disease may help reduce your child's risk of infection.


Hand-foot-and-mouth disease may cause all of the following signs and symptoms or just some of them. They include:
  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Feeling of being unwell (malaise)
  • Painful, red, blister-like lesions on the tongue, gums and inside of the cheeks
  • A red rash, without itching but sometimes with blistering, on the palms, soles and sometimes the buttocks
  • Irritability in infants and toddlers
  • Loss of appetite
