Tomorrow is our track and field day, Each class walks from BL with their teachers to participate and then we walk back. Grades K-3 are scheduled to start at 8:30AM and Grades 4-6 are scheduled to start at 11:45AM. I am asking parents and families that are planning on coming- to watch the weather. If it raining heavy or there is thunder, track and field will be canceled. If canceled, our teachers will plan for games/activities in our classrooms and gym, but we won’t be able to have visitors/spectators in BL like we would if we were outside at the track. I will offer an all call in the morning close to 8:00AM and then at 11:30AM to let families know if either session of track and field are canceled, hopefully saving parents a trip if we have to cancel.
