WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) Colder temperatures are on tap later this week, so you will want to layer up.
With wind chills in the 20's and 30's, Mark says it's going to be a rollercoaster weather week.
Melissa Murray spoke with a few teachers who say a child won't be able to concentrate in the classroom if they're not bundled up while they're outside.
"If a student goes outside, and they don't have the right coat, they might get too cold. Then they can't focus when they come in. They are just worried about warming back up. They are just worried about not having their hands and their ears cold," says Connor Christensen with Apollo Elementry School.
Teachers say they see a difference in health when the temps drop.
"We want to make sure if it's 35-40 degrees outside, that our children are bundled up and warm. At this stage especially, a lot of the body heat leaves from their head, feet, and hands. We want to make sure that our children are safe," says Cornelia Stevens with Top Learning Centers.
Parents, if you were asked to donate disinfecting wipes at the beginning of the year... That's why!
Teachers say it comes down to wanting their kids to be safe and healthy throughout the school year.
