IMPORTANT INFORMATION, PLEASE READ COMPLETELY

 Students in grades 1-6 will be skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing the day we come back from vacation, Jan. 2nd.

 All equipment MUST be in the trailer by 9:30.  The person who brings it to the mountain is a volunteer and may take it anytime during the morning.  If the trailer is gone, you will need to transport your child’s skis/snowboards to the mountain.

 CLOTHING & GEAR

Dress in layers and in waterproof clothing.  

No knit mittens please.  These get wet and cold quickly.  

All skiers and snowboarders MUST have a helmet designed for the sport.  For example, a bike helmet cannot be used.

 TRANSPORTATION

With our new transportation company this year we will be able to get students back to school by 3:40-3:45.

 If you are picking up at the mountain be there by 3:20. All students MUST be signed out with

our staff member located in the lodge.  PLEASE do not take students without signing them out.  We will stay until all are accounted for.   The hope is to have the buses loaded and moving by 3:30 and any students remaining in the lodge will be put on the bus and return to school.

 If you are picking up at school be here between 3:35-3:45.  The buses will drop student in the back parking lot for pick up.  It is very clustered and busy!  Please go slow and be careful.  Staff will be present to coordinate as the bus unloads; you get equipment from the trailer, and be sure that the children go safety to their vehicles.

 If you need your child to take the bus home they will return to school from King Pine and then load onto their regular bus.  (This is a change from the permission slip sent earlier)  Kindergarten and snowshoeing students will remain at school and those taking the bus will load the bus as normal. Bus routes will remain the same but the further along the list of stops the earlier it will arrive; meaning that those with stops early in the route will be close to normal drop off time while those along the route will be up to 15-20 minutes early.  This is due to the number of students riding the bus on this day.  Many students get picked up at King Pine and many get picked up at school so families can get the equipment at the same time.

 Kindergarten and those that snowshoe:  If they have siblings that go to King Pine and will return to school to be picked up, your child/ren here at school will be walked to the back parking lot to meet you as you pick up your skier/snowboarder.

 If you change your plans for pick up please send a note with your child Tuesday morning.  A list is made each week so staff members know at the end of the day where your child is expected to go.
