Oh yes, "if they are not feeling well".  I did not think of that one!  Can you tell I'm a first time mama?  shy.gif  Well, there will be many more slippers as my son grows so I guess it'll just be a learning process for me.  Tomorrow is the first day of school!

Pretty much all of the kids in DD's class wear crocs for their inside shoes.

They are made in Austria.

Thanks! I'm always looking for brands not made in China.

I got my first "bad mommie" note from school.  I thought I had read through everything - many times.  They wanted velcro sneakers - yup, done that.  The supply list said that she was supposed to have velcro sneakers and these  would be the shoes she'd also use for PE.  So, I'm thinking - yayyyyyyy!  Simple - same shoes throughout the day.

 

Uh, no.  It's been raining like the sky is falling, so I guess her shoes were wet and squeaky in class and everyone else changed into "indoor shoes".  So, fortunately, my ex picked her up today and I ended up working at the office until after 11 pm, thus my late post.  I'm lucky my little one hates shoes, so I had an extra pair of sneakers in the car, put in her "school tote", dropped off, and then made it home without getting too wet.

 

Somehow I didn't associate the supplies list - a few items, with page 43 (of the parents' manual - or whatever page).

 

Awesome school - really, but, I need to learn to read better!

I know this post is older, but at DS's school they forbid Crocs and flip-flops (due to slipping and instability while running / playing).    They actually want all of the kids to wear ballet slippers as their inside shoes.

 

Which, after running all over town, I discovered that are sold at Payless, of all places.  eyesroll.gif

but these are for inside only. my ds changes to outside shoes when they run/play. otherwise, they are inside doing works/circle time/etc.

Same - no crocs for us. They also use their indoor shoes for physical education in gymnasium. We need to use indoor-friendly shoes that provide adequate support. No flip flops until middle school (7-8 grade). I'll check into the idea of ballet slippers for class and "sneakers" for physical education - my little one is a barefoot diva - hates shoes, so if I could find her something soft-soled, she'd be much happier.
