We are so happy that the weather is starting to get warmer and we can go play outside again! LEAPers and teachers are excited to be doing more and more outside activities, including Fort Building in the Woods, going on Nature Walks, and outdoor free-play.
Because of these activities, however, we want to remind everyone to be aware of Ticks, Poison Ivy, Sunburns, and other outdoor dangers to children. LEAP staff is doing all they can to assist children and keep them safe, but we can’t do it alone.
Here is a great educational website about tick safety for kids– it’s a good idea to make tick-checks a part of your bedtime routine. Parents are welcome to send students with sunscreen and bug-spray and the LEAP staff will assist if necessary. Thank you for helping us keep your children safe!
