As the warm weather approaches… Please join us in supporting healthy living with the beautiful weather that spring and summer brings. We will be spending more time in our playground, please send in sunscreen for your child. Please apply sunscreen to your child before arriving at school and we will re-apply as needed. If you have children in separate classrooms, please supply a separate bottle/tube for each child. For your child’s safety, we do not allow children to wear sandals, clogs or slippery soled shoes (dress shoes) to school. In the playground, children run and climb and the mentioned shoes can be very dangerous. We recommend that children wear rubber soled shoes (sneakers) to school. As the weather warms, we want to be able to provide comfortable clothing for any child in need of extra clothes. To help us, please remember to swap out extra winter clothes with fresh summer clothing in your child’s cubby. Labeling all items brought to school assists us in maintaining organization.

* Please return any borrow clothes the school sends home with your child, for others to use if needed. *All unused sunscreen is returned home at the end of the season. *Please check the expiration dates on the sunscreen you supply the school.
