Dressing Your Child for Autumn Outdoor Play

One of a child’s most fun and exciting activities is playing outdoors. During the autumn months, playing outside is not just about running around; there are many learning opportunities for children who experience the changing weather and seasons. 

We are deep into Fall weather, which means cool breezes in the mornings.  Our students are still having outdoor recess and physical education classes.   Check out some useful tips below to help your child dress for success in the cooler weather.

  • Bring a jacket to school. They can wear it outside or take it off if they get warm.
  • Dress in layers
  • Wear comfortable sneakers or closed-toe shoes

Allergies

There are several students in the school with severe food allergies, requring emergency medical intervention if they were to come in contact with their allergen.  We have a policy of "Not Sharing is Caring".  This means that students cannot share any food with anyone else in the classroom and cafeteria.
