The Field Trip is ON! To Heck with the Weather.

Dear Parents,

We’ve made a decision today to go on our Field Trip on Tuesday, rain or shine.

The weather currently speaks of "occassional showers." It seems hard to cancel and reschedule — a decision we’d have to make today — based on that forecast.

We are also planning on doing our scavenger hunt rain or shine — so please make sure that your kids come prepared for the weather.

We recommend:

  • A raincoat or a water resistant jacket
  • An umbrella
  • A hat
  • A pair of shoes that you won’t worry about getting wet/muddy
  • A change of clothes that can be left at school to change back into if we get really wet.

To spice things up a bit, we are going to buy a box of garbage bags and host a "garbage bag poncho decorating contest." That will turn what could be a frowny kind of day into something funny. If you have garbage bags and your kids want to get started on their decorations this weekend, that’s fine with us!

Keep your fingers crossed for good weather OR good attitudes in the case of a rainy day from beginning to end!

Hope this helps,
Bill Ferriter
