As the extremely cold weather continues in the Capital Region, Superintendent Jeff Simons is encouraging students to bundle up with warm coats, gloves, hats, hoods and scarves, and to wear proper footwear to school.
Friday’s forecast shows wind chills ranging from -5 to -35 degrees.
Despite the weather warnings and their parents’ advice, sometimes kids in middle school and high school refuse to wear the proper clothing and footwear for these cold spells during winter.
“It’s better to be warm and safe than fashionable in this harsh weather,” Mr. Simons said.
Should families be in need of warm winter clothing they should contact their child’s school counselor and arrangements can be made.
