Kids ClothesAh, if your little darling should come home with clothes on from the health room, would you please wash those and send them back the next day? We are having quite a few accidents and need them back to cover for the next kiddo.

In addition, if you see that this is happening regularly with your child, feel free to put a change of clothes in their backpack. Please make sure to include underwear, pants, shirt and even socks. Thank you so much!
