  • Outdoor Learning Opportunities Many classes are looking forward to upcoming trips to Bronte Creek and other outdoor learning opportunities. As the weather changes, students are still required to wear closed toe shoes for any outdoor learning trips (no sandals or flip flops).

The weather is beginning to warm up so it is time to consider tick prevention. One way to avoid ticks is to wear splash or long pants with an elastic bottom, tucked into boots or socks. We of course take precautions on our trips, such as being careful not to sit down in areas of long grasses. It ...
