FASRI has two recess periods a day. Please be sure that your children are properly dressed.
In the Fall: please be sure students have a coat or vest.
In Winter: please be sure students have a warm coat, hat, mittens, snow pants, and boots.
In the Spring: please be sure that students have a coat, vest, and/or water repellent coat. Rain boots and winter boots are encouraged as long as students have sneakers for indoors.

During Fall and Spring, please pack a sun hat and sunscreen for your child. Please inform the teacher that your child has sunscreen so that the teacher may remind the student to put it on.

Students are required to dress themselves and keep track of their clothing. Lost & Found bins are on each floor. If a student’s attire is unacceptable, parents may be called to come pick up their child.
