Winter Expectations at Fleming
Please take note of the guidelines and expectations below related to winter weather clothing and recess. It is important for all families to understand we are committed to holding outdoor recess whenever possible, and how clothing choices can impact opportunities for students at recess.
***If you need help getting winter clothing for your learner, please reach out to the school so we can put you in touch with our school counselor, principal, office manager, or school-based clinician to help.***
We will hold outdoor recess unless the temperature is below zero with the wind-chill.
Thank you for your help!
As we move into some of the cooler parts of the Fall season, and inch towards the time of year when it is downright cold, I just wanted to remind families to be mindful of the weather when sending students to school. On most days, we will have outdoor recess (even if it is cold and a bit rainy) as long as it is not raining hard. We believe the fresh air is important for our students.
Also, it is very hard for Ms. Aldrich to answer the phone at dismissal time, due to making announcements, students sent from classrooms to do their end of the day jobs, etc. Any end of the day changes to a student's plan should be called in by 2:45 to guarantee that we have time to get the message to the student before we start dismissing students.
All drop-off and pick-up traffic will follow the parking lot / driveway around the back of the building to the sidewalk area in front of the building. The front loop is closed to all traffic with the exception of buses.
Drop-off time occurs between 7:40am and 8:00am. Students may not arrive or be dropped off prior to 7:40 am as we do not have staffing to supervise them.
The playground is closed prior to the start of the school day.
1. All end of day changes to a students plan, needs to be called into the office no later than 2:30 so that we have time to follow up with the student/teacher.
2. We are asking families that need to pick their student up early, to be here no later than 2:30 to do so. Pick ups after this time, are rather difficult due to the traffic at that time, along with the buses arriving soon after for student pick up.
We understand that emergencies do arise and we can address those if they come up.
Thank you for understanding and your cooperation.
Congratulations to EES second grade teacher, Anna Meehan, for being this year's award recipient.
