We often send reminders to parents to make sure their children are dressed warmly in cold weather. We try to get students outside for morning line-up and recess whenever possible. Classroom teachers also take short breaks during the day, when necessary.
We also want students to be dressed appropriately for the winter when they are indoors. Students should wear long pants, layered clothing on the top, socks, and closed-toed shoes. If there was an emergency in the building that necessitates an evacuation, we want students to be as safe as possible in bitter weather. We have a protocol in place for school evacuations in severe weather, but students will be outside for at least a few minutes while the dangers are being assessed.
