Preparing Your Child for Winter Weather

Hello McGraw parents;

Just a friendly reminder to help your kids come dressed prepared to go out to recess every day.  A reminder for snowy days:

                - If students are in boots, snow pants, etc. they will be able to go out and play in the snow.

                - If students do not have boots, they cannot go out in the snow but get  to play just on the blacktop.        

Several students have come in shorts and tank tops to school on days that we were predicted to have cold and/or snowy weather….many have only brought a sweatshirt to pull on for recess. It’s best to just plan for outdoor recess every day, then if the sun is out and there is no wind we have the option to let the students go outside to expend some energy!  We carefully evaluate the weather conditions throughout the day to determine if the conditions are safe to send children out to recess. Also, as you are helping your child find his/her winter clothing, please put his/her name on them so if lost, we can return them to the appropriate owner.

Thank you,

Mrs. Smith
