Cold Weather Reminders

January 15, 2015

Bridges parents, it’s that time of year again.  It’s cold outside!  We’d like to touch base about a couple of cold weather reminders.

  1. Please remember to bundle your kids up before drop-off in the mornings.  When really chilly, please include hats and mittens/gloves.  We love to go outside every day we can and hate to see any of the kids without toasty outerwear!  Make sure to label all extra gear with your child’s name; we have a lot of removable clothing items this time of year, and labels help us keep our students and teachers organized.
  2. As a reminder, Bridges and Beyond will follows Wake County Public School’s Inclement Weather announcements. If WCPSS is delayed one OR two hours, Bridges and Beyond will be delayed only ONE hour. If WCPSS is closed, Bridges and Beyond will be closed. We will not schedule a make-up day unless there are more than two missed days of school.
  3. We tend to have more kids with sicknesses during the cold weather months, so as a reminder, here’s our illness policy:
    If your child is sick or unusually irritable or tired, please do not send him/her to school. They need to be free from fever, vomiting, diarrhea, contagious virus, or have been on an antibiotic for 24 hoursbefore returning to school. If he/she has thick, green mucus coming out of the nose continuously, please keep them home as well. This indicates infection which is contagious to others. We appreciate your extra caution for the purpose of keeping the other students and teachers well, and child can have the ones they love the most nurturing them while not feeling well.

Thanks as always for your support and for letting us be a part of your child’s day-to-day!
