From The Principal

Dear Havel Families,

Havel students will continue to go outdoors for recess throughout the fall and winter months. Havel reviews playground conditions, weather conditions, and temperature each day (board policy- students are to remain indoors if the temperature is less than 10 degrees) to determine if students can go outdoors for recess or if the students need to remain inside. The exercise and fresh air are beneficial for students' physical and educational growth. A doctor's note/medical diagnosis is required for students to remain inside during recess time. Students should be dressed for the weather as we head into the colder days and upcoming winter months.

Your Proud Principal,

Mrs. Tepper


To educate students, promote life long learning and encourage students to become productive citizens within a positive and safe learning environment.
