“There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.” This popular Scandinavian saying will serve our Academy community well, too. Your child has been spending lots of time outside learning since returning to school. It is very important that your child comes to school each day with a waterproof jacket that preferably has a hood attached. Boots, gloves and a waterproof hat are all-important clothing items to have at school daily, especially now that the weather is getting cooler. We also recommend that students come to school wearing long pants (please note that this is mandatory after Thanksgiving) from now on. In order to maintain proper social distancing, the carline and bus riders will be outside rain or shine, so it is imperative that your child be prepared to wait in any type of weather. Umbrellas are not recommended, but a waterproof hat is!
