Summer weather, dress code and health and safety
June 1, 2011Posted by on
As the weather gets warmer we would like to take this opportunity to ask parents to review the Lorna Jackson dress code with their children. The dress code is outlined in the Student Agenda.
Our school will implement a Hot Weather Action plan when conditions warrant in accordance with both our board and school’s Health and Safety procedures. Some general guidelines we recommend to all our families is to:
– Ensure children dress in appropriate clothing for the temperatures
– Ensure your child comes to school with a drink for snack and lunch
– Ensure sunscreen is applied before your child leaves for school
– Have your child wear a hat for additional protection at recess times
On the announcements this week, we also reminded students to ensure their outdoor activities were not too vigorous and to use the shaded areas of our grounds as needed.
While many of us welcome the lovely weather this week, we do want to ensure that we have a safe and healthy time while enjoying the outdoors this June.
