During winter months, snow boots may be worn to school but the uniform pant must be worn over-top – do not tuck pants inside.
We expect students to attend school wearing clothing that is clean, neat, and appropriate for a serious learning environment.
Additionally, students must remove sunglasses, excessive jewelry, coats, hats, caps, knit hats, bandannas and outdoor headgear (such as wool headbands) before entering the school building. Headgear may be confiscated if worn repeatedly in the building and held in the office for a parent to pick up. We believe strongly that students, just like adults, need a balance of both physical and mental activity, and to spend time in outside environments. Students will spend time in outdoor activities throughout the year, unless it is raining or there are extreme temperatures. Please provide your child with climate appropriate apparel and sunscreen as needed. Snow pants, boots, gloves, hats, and scarves may be kept at school during the winter months.
