Welcome back Butler Elementary Students

Good Monday afternoon, BES families! I hope you and your family enjoyed the holidays and our students are ready to be back with us tomorrow. We are finally experiencing cold weather so I wanted to make you aware of a couple of things happening in our building.

Construction is still ongoing with the new entrance, office area, and new HVAC in half of the building. Because of this, some of our classrooms and hallways are colder than others. Please have your child dress in layers and long pants so they are comfortable throughout the day. 

The majority of our building is comfortable and we are taking measures to warm up the areas that are colder, but we would appreciate your help with this.

Below is the recess policy for cold weather:

Students go outside for recess whenever possible. In cold weather, we carefully watch the temperature and go outside when it is 25 degrees or warmer (including wind chill factor). Please be sure that students have appropriate cold weather clothing. Outer wear such as coats, hats, and gloves should be marked with the child’s name or initials. If your child is in need of a warm coat please let our Counselor or Principal’s office know.

If you have any questions at all please let me know. You can reply to this email or call me at 660-679-6591. I look forward to seeing our students in the morning!
