Directed Play: The children will go outside everyday for directed play as the weather permits.  Please dress children appropriately for any kind of weather condition, as well as for the use of our playground equipment.  Students need sneakers to go on our playground equipment.  Our goal is to keep students safe and comfortable during this important time in their school day.
