As the weather gets warmer we remind parents to follow the Footwear Dress Guide from the Parent-Student Handbook for their child’s safety - “Flip-flops or similar footwear is not appropriate to wear at school. They do not provide the protection needed during P.E. and/or daily recess. Please keep these shoes for casual wear at home.”
