Skating Tomorrow (weather permitting)

Bonjour familles!

As you know, we will be going skating tomorrow at Britannia.

The plan is to walk to the rink, but we will be postponing the field trip to a later date if the rain is too hard. Last year, my students were soaked on the walk and were unable to enjoy their time skating.  If this is the case, we will be contacting the rink to look at other possible dates.

I will send out a message by 8:30am tomorrow ONLY IF we need to postpone.  If you do not hear from me by 8:30am, please assume skating is on!
The plan is to leave the school shortly after 9:00am – please be on time!  Students will come in and put away their backpacks, we will quickly go over the expectations, and then we will be on our way.
Please make sure your child wears the following items:
  • Warm, waterproof coat
  • Thick socks
  • Warm pants (e.g. ski pants)
  • Mittens
  • Good walking shoes or boots
  • Helmet (helmets are available at the rink, but we recommend that you bring your helmets are fine!)


**Please make sure your child has a SNACK in a disposable wrapper that fits in their coat pocket.

**Please DO NOT send your child with any money (students will not be permitted to buy anything at the rink).

**Your child is welcome to bring their own skates, but will be responsible for carrying them on the walk.  Skates are available at the rink.

Volunteer Chaperones:
Please meet the class at 9:00am as we will be leaving right away.  We would appreciate everyone’s help in putting on the skates once we get to the rink.  You are welcome to skate on the ice with us as well!
We will be returning at approximately 11:30am.
Merci et à demain!
