    For programs that are holding class outdoors, this thread on "How cold is too cold?" from 2018 may be helpful.

    If you also spend time indoors, I am wondering what systems programs have created to be able to hold all the warm clothing and boots that children wear outdoors.
    What works for your program?
    How do you store wet clothes so they have a chance to dry?
    How much time is needed to mop up water?
    What strategies do you use to make it easier for staff and children?

    Best wishes,
    Peggy
