  • FYI-Snow Info

    SNOW:  We have three simple rules about playing in the snow for the students’ safety that we would appreciate you encouraging your child(ren) to follow when at school:  

    1. Play in it & with it, but keep it on the ground (aka - no throwing snow balls or snow)
    2. Eat lunch, not snow! (aka – please don’t eat the snow)
    3. Leave snow outside where its happy  (aka – brush yourself off & no filling gloves/pockets/hats with snow to ‘save for later’*)  
    SLEDDING:  It has been a long-standing practice of parents to send sleds to school for their elementary students. Sledding is not a school-sanctioned activity – we neither encourage nor discourage it; sledding is the sole purview and responsibility of the parent.  Students sled only at the discretion and permission of their parents.  

    While ALCS does not prevent K-5 students from bringing sleds and sledding, the following rules do apply if a parent chooses to allow his/her student to sled: 
    1. All sleds must be clearly marked with the student’s name AND grade.
     ONLY the student to whom the sled belongs is allowed on the sled; sleds may not be shared – no piggy backing, doubling up, etc. 
    2. The student who owns the sled is the only user of the sled; this is how permission for sledding is understood (no sled = no permission to sled). 
    3. Students must have snow pants, boots, and gloves on to be allowed to sled. 
     ALCS is not responsible for sleds that are broken or go missing; sleds are kept outside the south foyer doors and are the responsibility of the individual student/family.  [we recommend families take them home each Friday]
    4. Should conditions change, ALCS reserves the right to end or limit sledding if students’ safety is a concern.
    We do all we are able to keep the students safe while sledding and these rules help us do so.  Some students are sad when they cannot sled, but without a sled of their own, we simply cannot allow them to do so. Building forts and playing in the snow can be an easy distraction for them. Contact Miss Barbie if you have any questions about sledding at ALCS.

    SNOW DAYS: If school is canceled or delayed due to weather, all parents are notified via text message and email (please make sure your phone numbers and emails are up-to-date in ParentsWeb!).  *If you're only phone number is your cell phone, please list it in BOTH the cell phone and home phone field.  Check your Parent Alert settings in Parentsweb if you are not receiving texts and would like to.

    We also post the information to the announcements section of our website and on our Facebook page. We notify the media and you will find us listed typically as Abundant Life Christian School OR Madison - Abundant Life Christian School depending on the station. We want to prevent inconvenience and frustration by communicating.
