Momo Challenge

   The Momo Challenge has hit Central Elementary.  Even some of my younger students are talking about it.  Please read about it on line so if need be you can do a preemptive strike confersing with your children about it. 

Please take time tonight to speak to your children about the 'hoax' MOMO CHALLENGE. I heard quite a few conversations about it today and it is NOT TRUE or VALID. Here is a link to help:

Flu/Strep

      Yes, we have EVERYTHING going around school!!  So, as a reminder, if your child has thrown up, or is running a temperature without medication please KEEP THEM HOME for 24 hours.

 

Make up Snow Days

     As a result of our "snow day" number 10 last week, our final make up day and new last day of school will be THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2019.  Our school calendar is set up as "snow days" 1-5 are not made up.  "Snow days" 6-10 are to be made up.  Any "snow days" after number 10 are not made up.

 

Winter

     A reminder that the students go outside for recess during the winter until the wind chill dips down to twenty degrees.  (If the wind chill is above 10 we will go out at lunch for 15 minutes, then inside for the rest of the recess) During lunch the students are outside for thirty minutes.  Please make sure that your child dresses warm!
