We will be completing various projects and activities that require students to use scissors, tape, glue, and other materials. Parents should be nearby to assist learners with these materials, especially when safety is a concern (i.e. hot water, scissors, etc.). Per Outschool policy, only the enrolled learner may be on screen for the class. Siblings, friends, and other unenrolled children may NOT be on screen during class. Parents also should be off camera at all times.

Food Allergy Warning:
We will use Play-Doh in this class at times. Play-Doh may contain wheat, which could cause an allergic reaction if ingested in those sensitive to wheat gluten or with Celiac disease.
