Cold Weather

As cold weather approaches, please ensure your child is dressed for
the weather. We do go outside whenever it is possible. Our official
temperature cutoff for recess is 20 degrees wind chill. Hats, gloves,
and winter coats are necessary on the playground when temperatures
get cold.


Delayed Start

Charleston CUSD #1 may run a delayed start schedule for all schools
on severe weather days.  On these days, Mark Twain students may
be dropped off at 9:30 a.m. and school will begin at 9:55 a.m. and
will dismiss at our normal 2:10 p.m. A light breakfast will be served
on these days.  Please have a plan in place in the event of a 2-hour
delayed start.
