We will plan to go the marsh tomorrow unless it is threatening thunder and lightning. Please be sure you send your child with appropriate clothes/footwear for muddy, wet conditions. We will be outdoors for a total of 3 hours.
You might also want to pack dry clothes and shoes for them if they will be spending the rest of the day at school. They can leave dry clothes here and change when we return to school.
I plan to purchase a box of trash bags to make homemade ponchos for kids who don't come prepared. The kids think that would be fun to wear, but please send them in raincoats if they own them. The bag ponchos won't cover their arms very well.
The marsh has also been very buggy this week. If you would like your child to wear bug spray, please apply at home. The marsh is strict about not spraying bug spray near the wildlife.
I will be making a call in the morning on whether to go or not. Kids know there is a possibility of us not going. I will be sure to refund all of your money if we do not go. We will be having a picnic lunch in our room if we have to stay at school.
Cross your fingers and do an anti-rain dance tonight! :)
