New outside rules regarding weather are as follows:  If the "feels like" temp is under 50 the children must wear coats.  If the "feels like" temp is 50 - 59 degrees the children don't have to wear coats if they have long sleeves.  Long pants must also be worn unless the temp is 60+.

If the "feels like" temp is 60+ the children get to choose.  We will be using the KSUM/KFMC website to find the temperature and it will be posted in three places.  Our playground expectations state that children will dress appropriately for the weather and they will listen to what the adults tell them to do.
