However, I just need to remind science students - juniors and seniors alike, that sandals without backs on them are not ok for wearing in a science lab. You need Roman-type sandals with backs on them. If you are doing any activity involving chemicals then you have to wear closed-toe shoes, not sandals. This could happen on any day, so have some at school ready. Your PE shoes are fine. You could keep an old pair of closed-toe shoes in your locker, or give them to your science teacher who will store them in the lab. Liz Hill Tuckshop and Kindo/EZ lunches Meals will be available to order on Wednesday and Thursday with more days to come as new suppliers come on board.
