District reminds students to dress for winter weather

January 30, 2019

As bitter cold temperatures arrive in the Capital Region this week, South Glens Falls Central School District officials are encouraging parents and guardians to make sure students are dressing appropriately for the weather conditions.

The National Weather Service in Albany recently issued a winter weather advisory for Jan. 30-31 and is warning of dangerously low wind chills, very cold temperatures, wind and snow showers.

Such cold temperatures pose an elevated risk of frostbite and hypothermia. The Weather Service advises those who are outdoors during such conditions to wear several layers of loose-fitting clothing, a wind-resistant and water-repellent outer layer, mittens or gloves that are snug at the wrist, waterproof boots, a scarf or face mask and a warm hat.

South Glens Falls CSD staff members will take temperatures into consideration when making decisions about outdoor activities throughout the week, including recess.
