We would appreciate your help to clear the walkways

Although the snow is pretty to look at, it poses a safety risk as the walkways can be quite slippery.  The daycare is responsible to keep the walkway around the perimeter of the daycare clear.  Staff may not have time to do this in the morning before the children arrive.  We would appreciate it if you have time at drop off to help staff clear the snow and salt the walkway, we have shovels and salt available.
