**Due to the rainy forcast for tomorrow, our field day is being postponed to Friday.**

Please remember to….

Apply sunscreen before coming to school.

Bring only a labled lunch and a seperate, labeled water bottle to school with you. (There will be water stations to fill water bottles up throughout the morning.) NO BACKPACKS are needed!

Wear sneakers and a yellow shirt.

Students will come to school their normal way. Once at Tackan things will be a little different. Kindergarten will disembark to have a fun day at Tackan. All other students will remain on the bus and travel over to the Middle School. If your child is normally a walker or goes to Before-School Care, we will place them onto a bus for the trip to Great Hollow. Students are not permitted to be driven straight to the middle school by parents!

I will be meeting up with the class under the yellow balloons for attendence and then the fun will begin from there!!!!

We are in need of a few coolers to keep our lunches cold during our field trip tomorrow. Does anyone have one or two that we can borrow tomorrow morining? It would be greatly appreciated!

Also if anyone has any ice packs that they wouldn’t mind us using to put into the coolers I would appreciate it if you could send it in tomorrow morning too. Just be sure that it is labeled with your name and I will be sure that it is returned to you.

Thank you so much for all of your support!!!
