On Again Off Again Winter

I know this has been an interesting winter, with some very cold days and then some unusually warm ones.  Because of this, the students are ready to throw down their coats and long pants and break out the shorts and suntan lotion.  However it is still winter, so in order to be adequately prepared for whatever the weather is, I am requiring that students be wearing long pants to go to outside recess until winter is over on March 21st.
