Radix May 2017 Newsletter

A few dress code reminders from the Principal…


  1. Flip flops are not permitted.
  2. Tank tops, spaghetti straps and undershirts are to be covered.
  3. Shorts should end midway from hip to knee.
  4. Open-toed sandals are not permitted on the playground.
  5. As always, send your child to school with a jacket or sweater. Temperatures throughout the building vary. An uncomfortable child is a distracted child.





Due to safety precautions, students wearing sandals will not be permitted on the mulch area.  It’s understandable that the children may wish to use the swings.  If this is the case, your child is welcome to bring sneakers or enclosed footwear to change into before coming into the cafeteria for lunch.  Flip-flops or slide on shoes without back straps are not permitted at any time.  Thank you for your cooperation with our efforts to keep all children safe while in our care.
