Dressing Up for the Weather

This winter is predicated to be a hard and cold winter. Our students are going out to breathe fresh air for about 20-30 minutes every day (weather permitting). Please make sure your child is properly dressed with a warm jacket, snow pants, boots, hat, scarf and gloves. We also recommend having an extra pair of socks and pants in their locker as sometimes they get wet when the kids play in the snow.
