**Students often spend time on the rugs so in an effort to
keep these areas clean, I ask that the students wear indoor shoes. These
are shoes that will be kept at school and worn exclusively indoors. 
Slippers are fine, but keep in mind that we will be having occasional fire
drills, and may need to walk outside in snow, mud or rain, so you may want
hard-soled slippers) Some students like wearing Crocs: they are
comfortable and easy to slip on and off.
