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.

Heavy jackets of any color may be worn when outside temperatures are below 50 degree.

Thanks for your cooperation with this.
