After speaking with Dr. White, we are in agreement that the shorts rule stated in the NPUSC General Handbook lacks flexibility. He has agreed to allow my discretion for an immediate change. Please send your children to school in clothing that you feel is acceptable for the weather. Therefore, shorts are acceptable on days that it is not 50 degrees in the morning but is forecasted to be warmer. Thank you, and enjoy the beautifully forecasted weather for the beginning of the fall season.
