According to the weatherman our first real blast of winter cold weather will be coming in this week, so please make sure your students are dressed for the weather. Preferably no shorts or flip flops, but coats, jackets and pants would be appropriate, because as you know the buses don’t warm up that much before they reach the school.   The American Horse School Board, Administration and Staff want to wish all of our students and their families a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We look forward to returning to school on the 1st of December to begin winter testing!
