Weather Wear

Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather. It has started snowing!  Your child will be going outside for lunch recess so boots, gloves and hats are highly recommended. Please make sure your child has an extra pair of shoes in their backpacks to change into when they come in the building. We do not want the  children to track in snow into the classroom. Our classroom has carpet so tracking snow in will make the floors wet and smelly.
