A Message from Ms. B:
Some clarification for our new families, from our handbook regarding gym uniforms:
UNIFORMS FOR PHYSICAL EDUCATION Grades Kindergarten, 1, and 2 need only gym shoes that are non-marking. Grades 3 through 8 need to wear the tee shirt and shorts purchased through the school’s Spiritwear Coordinator. This is a grey tee shirt with the O.L.L. logo and navy blue mesh or O.L.L. sports shorts with the O.L.L. logo. Non-marking gym shoes are required. When the weather is cold, navy or grey sweatpants are permitted.
We apologize for the inconvenience. Never hesitate to call and ask questions or for clarification!
While working today, I received a call from my daughter, who is a firefighter. She had just heard about the credible threat of an active shooter at Princeton HS. As a former teacher at Princeton HS, I still have many friends there and started going through every and all possibilities in my mind. Thank God, it was a hoax and no one was injured but I considered the emotional repercussions the staff and students might experience. As a community, we need to be aware of what is happening around the city and educate our students (remaining mindful of their age level). Education is the first layer of protection. Let’s promise to educate our students regarding social media, especially TikTok challenges and the consequences of pranks and hoaxes. We can also encourage our students that if they “see something, hear something, say something”. We will always work to keep your students safe. Be safe this weekend and enjoy the weather. Pray for an end to violence, pray for safety and peace.
