    Harlan Husky Families,

    Well, the cold weather is back.  Unfortunately, we had to have indoor recess twice due to the wind chill.  Please remember to send in all outdoor gear like hats, gloves, coats and snow pants for your child every day.  If the temperature with wind chill is 15 degrees or higher, we will be going outside for recess.  The fresh air and opportunity to run around is valuable for our kids all year long, but especially this time of the year.

    Have a great weekend!

    Alex
