Dear Parents,

As the weather turns colder, we want to remind you of the RCS dress code for lower school. Outerwear such as hoodies, sweaters, fleece wear, and sweatshirts must be ordered through Lands' End with the RCS logo or the Booster Club. A solid color heavy coat (non-RCS) may be worn outside on those really cold days. Thanks for your cooperation with this.
