Dress for the Weather!
Layers are a good option for students during the winter months. This allows a student to be comfortable regardless of classroom temperature, as well as outdoors during recess. Being too warm or cold can be a distraction to learning. Parents/guardians of students wearing clothing deemed not appropriate for the weather conditions by teachers/administrators will be contacted to bring the student a change of attire.
