Please make sure children are dressed appropriately for school with comfortable clothes that are suitable for school, especially for our Northwest weather - rain, snow and sun! Students will go outside everyday for recess, unless the weather is wet. Please make sure your child has comfortable shoes, coats, hats and gloves if necessary or anything else they need to be comfortable outside in any weather. If there is an issue with how your child is dressed for school, we will contact you to talk about the issue. Additionally, it is wise to mark your child's name in their belongings, so they can easily be identified if they end up in the lost and found box!
