If It Rains . . .
It is always disappointing to cancel Sports Day due to the weather because the students are geared up for a fun and exciting day. We also know that many parents try to take time off work to watch their children participate in Sports Day, as well as make pick-up arrangements for Friday’s early dismissal. Therefore, this year we have made a contingency plan if the weather is rainy tomorrow. Sports Day will go ahead with stations in the gym, portables and other classroom areas. However, the decision to cancel the bike parade will be made at 7:30 am. If a cancellation occurs, the information will be posted on our school website and tweeted out on our school Twitter. Other events will be modified to happen inside to make for a fun and community building day.
Please note that we will only move inside if the weather is very rainy. Students should be prepared to dress for the weather – whether that be rain jackets, sun hats, sunscreen, proper shoes, etc.
Food on Sports Day
We are hoping for a good weather day and encourage families to picnic outside during the lunch time. For families that have pre-ordered hot lunch, it will be delivered to the classroom. The PAC will also operate a concession from the gym kitchen with a variety of snacks and refreshments.
