BUT, WHAT IF IT RAINS?

As the forest school adage goes, there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing choices. If we're lucky enough to have rain, we require that children come dressed in multiple layers of warm clothing, rain jacket and waterproof boots. In rare cases of extreme weather (lightning storms, severe wind and rain, etc.) class will be canceled and credit issued.


WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD BRING?

Please prepare your child daily with a backpack, including: 

  • Extra set of clothes: shirt, pants, socks, underwear, shoes and sun hat
  • Healthy, high energy snack
  • Brown bag lunch
  • Water bottle
  • Mineral based sunscreen
  • Whistle (for safety)

 Children should arrive with a full stomach, having already visited the bathroom.


WHAT ABOUT BATHROOM VISITS?

We have access to public restrooms, but if an urgent bathroom need arises teachers are prepared “native school style” with portable sanitation supplies. We follow a carry in/carry out policy.
