Well, it’s here, and with the cold comes our annual reminders of making sure you send your child dressed properly to school. We still go outside for at least 30 mins. each time, which for full day students can amount to 3 times outside. This being said, we require all children to come dressed with WARM jackets, hats, gloves and warm shoes with warm socks. As we always say, layers are best, but at this point with the cold weather, sweatshirts or light jackets don’t do enough to keep kids warm. They need insulated jackets at this point. We still see a lot of kids coming in sweat jackets with little or no layers.
We don’t have the staffing to keep kids who are not properly dressed inside, so please make sure you send your child with the appropriate clothing so they don’t get cold outside. You can always pack a lighter jacket in their backpacks in case the weather turns nice in the afternoons. This time of year comes with widely changing temperatures throughout the day. At our school, we call it the wind tunnel, for the wind whips through the parking lot right back through the playground, making it often windy when in other places it may not be.
Thanks for your cooperation in this matter!
