Inside and Outside shoes required! The slushy, muddy season is close at hand! Students need a pair of inside shoes that are only worn inside the school. Outside shoes or boots are required and are left in the lockers after each recess to prevent tracking mud and slush into the classrooms.
Water Bottle and Labeling Reminders: Students need to have a reusable water bottle at school with them every day as drinking spouts at water fountains are off-limits for health reasons. Please label your son’s water bottle and any clothing, shoes, coats or school supplies that your son brings to school.
