Dress for the Weather

While our winter has been unusually warm, we are experiencing some very cold temperatures. Please remember, children are at a greater risk from the cold than adults. Their bodies are smaller & lose heat more quickly. With temperatures or wind chills below -15° Fahrenheit, exposed skin begins to freeze within minutes. Winter coats, boots, mittens or gloves, and a hat are essential. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately. Their safety is everyone's priority!
