Winter / Snow / Cold Weather Reminder
Unless the temperature is dangerously cold (e.g. – below 20 degrees or at the discretion of the office in consultation with major weather channels) or the conditions are unsafe, children should come to school prepared to go outside every day –
• morning arrival
• morning recess
• lunch recess
• Children are expected to wear clothing appropriate for the weather – hats, mittens, jackets and boots, etc. Shorts may not be worn outside.
• When snow covers the ground, children are expected to wear boots and snow pants to play in the snow on the field. (Boots are a good idea on most days.) Children will not be able to call home to get dry clothes.
• Children should bring a pair of shoes to wear inside the building and sneakers for days they have PE. Wearing outdoor / snow boots in the classroom all day can be uncomfortable and is discouraged. Sneakers are required for PE.
