Movement and fresh air are so important for our students, especially during the winter months. Going forward, when we have outdoor recess, any students who are wearing snow boots, snow pants, a coat, and gloves will be permitted to play in the snow and on the playground. The only rule we ask you to review with your child(ren) is that throwing snow/ice is not allowed. All other playground rules regarding safety and respect remain in effect (they can be viewed on our website). Students may bring their snow gear to school in a bag and all items should be labeled with student names.
There have been many viruses going around BBES recently. Please remind your children to wash their hands often. When students are not in school, please be sure to call in the absence and send in a note upon return. If students are absent due to fever or other contagious symptoms, they should remain home until 24 hours after the last symptom without the use of medications (Motrin, Tylenol, PeptoBismol, etc).
