WINTER DRESS CODE REQUIREMENTS

Children should be appropriately dressed throughout the winter: warm coats or jackets, hats, and mittens are necessities since children go outdoors to play at recess every day, weather permitting. Girls may wear pants under their skirts or jumpers which will be removed once they are in the building. All types of pajama pants are not allowed to be worn to school. We recommend sweat pants or the gym uniform pants. Boots or a second pair of shoes (e.g. sneakers) are required throughout the winter season. The purpose of this regulation is for the warmth and comfort of the child and to aid in keeping our buildings clean during the winter months.
