It is that time of year! The weather is cold and we are heading into snow season. Please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately for cold weather. Students are outside before school and for recess every day that we can be. Please make sure your child has warm clothing (coat, hat, mittens, snow pants, boots, etc.) each day. If your child is in need of winter clothing, please let us know. We have resources available to help.
