Dressing for Outdoor Play

This year we will be spending a lot of time playing and exploring outdoors. Please make sure your student comes prepared for playing outside everyday, even if it is raining! You may also want to ensure that your student’s clothing has their name on a label in case it gets left outside during recess.
