December has certainly arrived with the snow and bitter cold. Please remember that students will be outside for recess on most days unless there is rain, a heavy snowfall or temperatures combined with a wind chill of -15 degrees below zero or more. This means that all children should have a jacket, snow pants, boots, hats and gloves. If you are having difficulty getting any of these items please contact Pam Oldenkamp, our school social worker (952-556-6912).

School closings do not occur often in Minnesota but there are now two ways to find out about school closings due to inclement weather. Should weather impact school attendance, our district calling system will be used to communicate general announcements or reminders from our schools. Our District will continue to report school closings on WCCO Radio and local TV stations.  (Note: Our District is listed alphabetically under “Eastern Carver County.”)
