Hello OCRS families,
It looks like the warmer Spring weather is finally going to make an appearance this week, especially on Monday. Now that the weather is getting warmer, it can get warm in the classrooms, so you may want to help your child dress in layers so that they can be as comfortable as possible.

They will be doing traffic observations doing morning arrival/drop-off and afternoon dismissal/pick-up.
