Winter Weather is Coming!
The season of cold and snow has officially arrived. Weather permitting, our elementary students go outside for recess every day. In order for them to stay warm and dry, it is critical they come to school with appropriate winter clothing. During the winter months, students should have a coat, snow pants, outside snow boots, gloves, a hat, and a pair of dry inside shoes to change into after playing outside.
Once there is measurable snow on the ground, students who are lacking snow boots and snow pants will only be allowed to play on the sidewalk. It is important for kids to have the proper winter gear so they can get fresh air, have physical activity, play with their peers, and remain dry and comfortable when they return to class.
If you are unable to provide your student with any of the required winter-wear, please complete and return the slip below and we will be happy to assist you!
