Dear Fischer Parents,
Two weeks back at school and the students couldn't be happier, and we are elated to see them as well. Hearing them participate in class with their peers, feeling like they are at school again, and seeing them happy when they arrive in the morning, makes all these difficult circumstances temporarily disappear.
I appreciate that you continue to send your children inappropriate clothing for this climate. We have tried different ways to make them feel comfortable when they go out for their break. I know the teachers have explained that the children are not outside for all the 30 minutes they have for the break. Normally each class takes 5-8 minutes to get ready to go out and they the same time they use to get ready to learn again. If the weather is not very cold, as was the case yesterday, the children spend the rest of the time now (15-20 minutes) running, walking, talking, socializing with their friends. If the temperature does not feel comfortable, then the children just go out to eat their snack and return to their classrooms immediately for physical activity. We have purchased a small foam mat for each child to sit on while they eat their snack. They will begin using them when we return on Tuesday. Thank you again for sending your children to school with a warm jacket, gloves, scarf, boots, and snow pants.
