Winter is Coming!
It is good practice to have your child leave a pair of indoor shoes at the school to change into from their outdoor boots. Boots are not appropriate footwear for the entire school day. Furthermore, the children do enjoy playing in the snow. Snow pants will ensure that they will stay warm and dry for the afternoon classes (as will appropriate gloves, hats and scarves). As a policy at all schools, the practice of throwing snowballs is not permitted. If students are in school, they are expected to be dressed appropriately to be able to play outside.
P.S. Having an extra pair of socks at school or in their bag is ALWAYS a good idea.
