Dear Abraham Lincoln Families,
I hope this letter finds you and your family doing very well! It is hard to believe that winter is fast approaching. As the weather continues to turn cold, I would like to send a friendly reminder about some items that are important to all of us during the upcoming winter months. First, children should come to school every day prepared to play outside in the cold weather and snow. When snow is on the ground, students should have a winter coat and snow pants, mittens or gloves, boots and a hat. We try to give the students time each day to play outside and in the snow during recess. Proper clothing will help prevent students from needing to call home for dry clothing. Students who are not dressed properly are usually allowed to go outside, but they must remain on the dry blacktop area.
We are aware that some children may not have winter clothing that provides enough protection from the cold. It is also true that these difficult economic times may leave parents unable to purchase winter clothing as your children outgrow last year’s coats, etc. There are a number of resources that we can access, or help you access, to assist with the purchase of clothing. Please feel free to call Ms. Brosseau, our Guidance Counselor if you need help of this kind.
Thank you for all of your cooperation and support throughout the school year thus far. The students, families, and staff have been working diligently to create a nurturing learning environment for all children. We look forward to continued success and a bright future for our children.
