Snow Elementary School

Dressing For the Cold Weather

Dear Snow Families,

As the cold weather season begins please keep the following points in mind when sending your child to school.

  • Students should bring a light weight jacket or sweater to wear in class in case they get cold, especially if they are wearing short sleeves.
  • Students are asked not to wear their winter coats in class. They overheat and sweat, and then go outside, which breeds germs and is unhealthy.
  • We go outside for recess even in winter, so students should dress accordingly, including a hat and gloves/mittens.
  • If there is snow on the ground students must stay on the blacktop unless they are wearing snow pants and boots.
  • We have lots of lost and found items. Please make sure all of your child’s winter wear has his/her name on the inside.

Thank you,
