We, the Turtleback staff, have decided to try a new routine for students on the playground before school. Beginning Monday, January 5th our new morning routine will be to “Walk and Talk”. There are many reasons we have decided to try out this new routine, but the two most important are health and safety. We have a lot of students on the playground in the morning and very few adults to help supervise them. Additionally, if all students are going for a walk around the track before school, then they will be ready to learn beginning at 8:10. The idea is for students to walk with family members and friends around the track in the morning. This means no balls on the field (no soccer, handball or basketball) and no one on the playground equipment. Again, we will begin this new routine when we return from the winter break on Monday, January 5th. As always if you have questions, concerns or would just like to talk about the new routine, please email me at email@example.com. Thank you and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
