    Prepare for Colder Weather


    A Note from Nurse Lisa:
    Colder weather has arrived and children should come to school dressed for the weather. We aim to have the students go out for fresh air and exercise when the weather permits and we have guidelines to follow regarding when it is safe to have the students outdoors. They need hats, coats, and mittens to keep warm. Make sure you label them with your child's name in case they get lost!!

    You may check the weather forecast for a quick reference at, just type in the Grapevine zip code.

    The following guidelines will be followed regarding recess and outside PE classes:
    Students should not have recess or PE classes outside when the temperature or wind chill factor drops below 36 degrees. Elementary schools should limit outside recess to no more than 15 minutes if wind chill or temperatures fall below 45 degrees.

    Stay warm and healthy!
