School Closure Activities

During school closure days, parents often wonder what kinds of things they could be doing with their kids. Hopefully, this page will help! (Note that teachers are in the building on cold days and can be contacted via phone, e-mail, or Teams. On days where the school is closed due to hazardous conditions, the building is closed to everyone.)

Get physical! Mr. Stepanik will post some ideas, but if you've got basement space or living room space and can run or play with a ball or practice yoga or do some pilates or move your bodies in just about any way, that would be a good way to spend part of your day at home!
