Parents & Guardians: PLEASE NOTE: It is VERY important that your children come to school dressed for the weather. They now require (due to the weather) a winter coat, snow pants, warm mittens, warm hats, and warm sweaters or hoodies (dress in layers) and winter boots (not sneakers). The weather is very cold and we go outside daily unless the weather doesn't permit. There are still many children who are not ready for the cold weather.
Winter's Coming! Winter's Coming! Please Bring Indoor Shoes and Warm Winter Clothing! Please be sure to have your child bring their spare indoor shoes to prevent them from wearing wet footwear in school. Also, the weather is now cold outdoors, the snow has arrived and the children now should be fully geared up for winter. They should have a warm hat and mitts, winter coat and snowpants (snow will be coming this week) and warm winter boots. Please ensure your child is dressed for the weather as we do go out on snowy days.
