Hats, mittens, scarves, boots, and warm winter coats are essential during the winter months.  Students will be going out for recess if the temperature is above 10 and the windchill is above 0.  Snow pants and boots are required to play on the playground equipment or field. Please label ALL clothing, particularly snow pants.
