Our school is doing school-wide D.E.A.R. events our last school day next week that includes the option of Pajama & Slippers dress (we're usually a uniforms school), and my K team and 1st grade want to try it. What guidelines have you followed for this, and what should I include in the parent note? My note is mainly for K & 1st but other grades might use it. Thanks for your help!
I don't think you need a lot of guidelines. Kids seem to overdress on pj day--pj's, housecoat, slippers. I also let my kids bring a stuffie or blanket if they wish. They can keep their stuffy on their desk as long as it isn't distracting. But since you are reading, they can snuggle up with your kids. I'd even let them bring a pillow and a flashlight to make it even more fun!
We do school-wide pajama days once a year and always just say that pajamas need to be "appropriate." Most kids know what that means- not too short, no holes, clean (not the ones you wore last night!) and warm enough for Dec. weather. We also always say no nightgowns- but you could allow that if the girls wore leggings underneath. Any students that wear inappropriate pajamas are sent to the office and their parents have to bring them a new set of clothes. I've never had an issue with it.
