PLEASE DRESS FOR THE WEATHER!http://emk.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/285PLEASE DRESS FOR THE WEATHER!<p>​Mother Nature has been giving us all kinds of weather!  </p><p>Just a reminder to all our families that students need to come to school prepared to be outside for recess.  Please dress for the weather. <strong style="text-decoration:underline;">It is a good idea to pack a change of clothing in case you get wet at recess</strong>.</p><p>We also remind students to bring indoor shoes.  Students are required to change from their wet outdoor footwear to dry indoor shoes or slippers. This is for student safety, students should not be in the halls and classrooms  in bare feet or stocking feet.</p>
