Winter Clothing Reminder

As wintery weather and cold temperatures have arrived; it is important that students, especially those that ride the bus to and from school and activities, are dressed for the weather. Please be sure students have warm clothing such as coats, gloves, hats, and boots. Also, snow pants should be worn for recess. Sweatshirts and shorts are not sufficient on buses during winter months. Students may not be permitted to ride or play outside without appropriate winter clothing.
