Dress For Recess

We try to have the kids outside for recess as often as possible.  This means that they will often be outside even when there is a light rain.  Please make sure your kids are dressed warmly for recess.  It’s not a bad idea to have them carry a change of clothes in case they get wet from the puddles.
