Principal’s Notes May/June 2017
It’s hard to believe how quickly the school year is passing!
This spring we will again be reviewing our ALICE protocols in the classrooms, in preparation for practice drills similar to the ones we ran last year. We appreciate your support as we continually seek to make our school safety protocols as effective as possible.
A recess note:
Warmer weather means wearing summer clothes, including “flip-flops” and backless sandals/shoes. We are concerned that wearing such items can in some situations prove to be quite unsafe for students in the school building and on school grounds. The students enjoy running and playing games during recess, whether on the hardtop or on the baseball field. “Flip-flops” and strapless sandals/shoes can prove to be dangerous while running. In addition, as students are walking, another student can accidentally step on the back of the “flip-flop” or sandal, causing students to trip. We are asking that students choose to wear alternative footwear more appropriate for play for their own safety. Thanks!
We have many end of the year activities in the last few weeks of school. They will be posted on the West calendar, and I will also send emails and notices as events come closer. Thanks for all your support!
