Regarding Recess

Please be advised. In cold weather, students should still be allowed to play outside whenever possible. Unless it’s snowing, there is ice on the playground, or the wind-chill factor is below zero degrees fahrenheit (-18 degrees celsius), schools should not prohibit outdoor play based on the outdoor temperature alone. On very cold days, school staff should make sure that students cover up skin, wear warm clothing, and use several layers to stay warm.

Attention 5th grade Parents-

It is again the "Middle School Choice" time of year again!!!! The application process is not open yet but, IS 61 is hosting their Remote 5th Grade Open House on December 15th, at 6:30 PM.

IS 61 is a magnet school, and therefore will be a choice on all 5th grade students' applications in District 31. I am asking that you please distribute the electronic flyer that I have attached to your 5th grade parents emails, and possibly post it on your website, or to the 5th grade google classrooms, or whatever electronic platform you are using?

We have some exciting things happening here at IS 61 and would love to share them with your students and families!
