Winter in Loretto at WMES

Request for parents: Please take some time in the morning to make sure your child is appropriately dressed for the weather. We understand that mornings can be hectic but please do the following: 1. Dress your child in layers (t-shirt, long sleeve shirt, hoodie) 2. Make sure shoes are closed and that your child wears socks to keep his/her feet warm. 3. Make sure your child is wearing outerwear that is available in your home like a winter coat, gloves/mittens, scarf, and a hat. 

Thank you for your cooperation! We are going to have a great week at school despite the cold outside! It's warm and toasty at WMES!
