We go outside most days. If the temperature drops, we will decrease time outside. If the temperature or wind chill is 35 or below, we will stay inside.
Sunscreen and/or bug spray (if desired) must be applied by the child's parent or guardian. A sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher is recommended.
If you feel your child does not feel good enough to go outside, please do not bring him/her to school.
At times, FPDS children will have the opportunity to play in sprinklers, with water in the sensory tub or in the wading pools. At no time are children unsupervised when participating in water activities.
FPDS keeps several aquariums in the building. State law does not allow frogs, turtles, or domestic birds as classroom pets. Please do not bring pets from home, such as dogs, to the school property. Service animals are allowed on school property. We occasionally have special pet visits about which you will be informed in advance. Children and teachers are required to wash their hands with soap and water before and after handling animals. If your child has an allergy to any animal, please inform the school.
