Cold Weather Clothing Reminder

During the Winter months, please remember to send your student to school every day with the items listed below.

We go outside every day when the wind chill temperature has our "Feels like" temperature higher than zero degrees.

  • hat
  • pair of gloves or mittens
  • coat
  • snow pants
  • boots
  • change of clothes
  • indoor shoes

If students do not have boots and snow pants, they will still go outside but need to stay on paved areas of the playground during recess. This is done to keep them dry.

Please pack indoor shoes for your student to wear inside the school building. Wearing wet snow boots is not only uncomfortable but makes for wet floors, which can lead to injury.

Need Winter Clothing Items?

If you need assistance with obtaining winter gear, please contact Mrs. Grykien or Nurse Reyna. Health Office: (802) 857-7740.
