And it's free!

Cold Weather Information: Cold Mornings...If the temperature gets below 20 degrees in the morning, we will line students up for class inside the school to keep everyone warm. Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders will sit in the hallways and wait for their teacher. The 3rd, 4th and 5th graders will wait in the gym.
If we have a late start or school is canceled because of snow or ice, there are several places to gain that information each morning.
If we have a two hour late start, school will begin for students at 10:40. All before-school activities will be canceled and no breakfast served. There will be NO morning kindergarten on late start days.
