Outdoor Recess

As the weather warms up and the snow begins to melt, our playground is full of very large, muddy puddles.

In order for the students to enjoy outdoor recess and to stay dry, it would be recommended for children to wear rubber boots and splash pants. It is also requested that children have an extra pair of socks (or two!) and an extra pair of pants in their backpacks in case their socks or pants get wet.
