Inclement Weather Plan for Spanish Oaks

Submitted by kali.brown on

As the weather begins to cool, the expectation is for students to go outside on appropriate days.  Students need to come dressed for outside play.  When the temperature is below 20 degrees, students will be inside.  On days when the temperature is between 20-32 degrees, we will make a careful decision as to whether an 'outside' or 'inside' day is appropriate.  Wind chill, air quality and precipitation will always be taken into consideration when making these decisions.  As the inevitable ‘inside day’ is needed, we are grateful to

We had the amazing opportunity of having our very own Spanish Fork Veterans join us for a Veterans Day Assemby as we showed our love and appreciation for those in the service everywhere who have fought for the freedom of our country.  It was extra special to have Maren Christensen, one of our own staff, play "Taps" as the flag was retired, as well as our school choir singing The National Anthem.
