Dorothy Simon students need to dress for the colder weather

 As the weather soon will turn colder, it is very important that students come to school prepared to go outside for recess. We will have recess if the temperature and wind chill is 15 degrees and above. If your child cannot go outside due to medical reasons, please provide a doctors excuse for the child to remain inside.
