Whew! It's cold at Sandburg!

Yesterday Please remember to send your child dressed appropriately for winter weather.  A warm coat, gloves, and a hat are very important.  Students should have boots to keep their feet warm and dry as well.  Children will be outside in the morning before school and at lunch recess unless the temperature or the wind chill is 10 degrees Fahrenheit or below.  We make every effort to give children a daily opportunity to run, play and socialize outdoors with friends.
