*Dress Code Reminder:  All tops worn with leggings, tight athletic pants (yoga pants, running tights, etc), tights, etc., must come down to at least the mid thigh.  To put it bluntly, some of these bottoms are very thin. Underwear is sometimes visible through them. Please make sure the shirt/top completely covers your child’s bottom.  Thank you.
