  • For your Information:

    According to the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Council on School Health, parents should be encouraged to dress children in multiple light layers.  In any weather, small children should typically wear one layer more than an adult would wear.

    We urge all students to be mindful of these precautions and take measures to ensure their well-being during these cold and challenging winter days
