Why are children expected to wear close-toe sandals?

Our outdoors play area is partially covered with mulch and partially covered with asphalt.

Both of these surfaces are not toe firendly for different reasons.

Thus, in the summer time, students are asked to come to school with closed toe sandals.

"The Winchester staff gives my child exactly what she needs instead of expecting her to fit into some pre-conceived plan. She loves Winchester!" ~ Sarah R.,  Mom of Sadie 2nd grader

"Children desperately need to know - and to hear in ways they understand and remember - that they're loved and valued..."
