Dressing for the Weather

After these warmer weather days, there is not much snow left. Remember to watch the weather forecast so your child can be prepared for playing outside. Students are outside for 20 minutes, so hats and gloves are important. Please be sure your child has a pair of shoes to wear at school on days that he/she wears boots to school. Boots are too clumsy to wear in the classroom and can be a safety issue. Additionally, boots track in a lot of water into the classroom, which makes our tile floor quite slippery.
