SCHOOL DRILLS

Each year we participate in a number of emergency drills that are designed to help staff and students respond in case of an emergency.  South School will implement a lockdown drill in the coming weeks.  During a building lockdown drill, we stay inside the classroom, turn the lights off, and sit quietly in an area that is not highly visible.

Please feel free to take some time to talk with your child about the types of emergencies that could require a school to lockdown:

- The presence or possible presence of an intruder
- A dangerous situation taking place in the vicinity of the school
- A hazardous spill or other type of accident that could pose a threat to the safety of staff and students.

Lockdown drills can cause anxiety for younger students.  Taking the time to talk with your child at home could help to alleviate unnecessary anxiety.  Please feel free to contact Kelly Zonghetti, South School Principal, should you have any additional questions or concerns.

ICE SKATING

One exciting aspect of our physical education curriculum allows South School students to ice skate at Watts Center during the winter.  Classes will skate on Wednesdays or Thursdays, beginning January 16 and 17.  Additional information will be shared from your child’s classroom teacher. 

**NEW THIS YEAR – HELMETS ARE REQUIRED**
Helmets are required for all ice skating sessions.  Students can wear hockey, ski or bike helmets. While the time on the ice is brief, if your child will be wearing a winter hat under his or her helmet, please be sure to re-fit the helmet.  Students are welcome to store helmets in their lockers during the four weeks of classes.  Please make sure your child comes to school with snow pants, jackets, gloves.  Every child must be properly dressed to be allowed on the ice. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Kelly Zonghetti (zonghetk@glencoeschools.org) with any questions.  Thank you for your continued support of our program.
