Children can and will get messy during the day. Children should be sent to school in clothing that can easily be laundered. When painting children often get paint on their hand, arms, and any clothing not covered by the painting smock. While washable paint is used it can sometimes stain certain fabrics.
Children should be wearing clothing they can easily manage to unfasten and refasten when going to the bathroom. Suspenders, belts, onesies, rompers, long dresses, and overalls are all adorable and cute; however, can cause bathroom accidents if they can’t be undone quickly enough or tripping while playing.
Only shoes with closed-toes and closed-heels, with soft rubber soles such as athletic or tennis shoes are permitted for school. Sandals, flip-flops, crocs and hard-soled shoes such as cowboy boots may not be worn at school as they are a climbing, playing, running and tripping hazard.
Each child is required to proved a full change of clothing to be left at the school in case of an accident. This includes a top, bottom, underwear and socks. All clothing must be labeled with your child’s first and last name and placed in a sealed plastic bag for protection.
The consumer product safety commission recommends, for your child’s safety, the removal of the hood and neck string from your child’s outerwear, including jackets, sweatshirts, and headwear.
