I don't know if this was common in other elementary schools, but I HAD to have a cleancotton handkerchief in a pocket (or in my case, pinned to my slip) when I walked into class eachday--even kindergarten. Pinned to my slip because I forgot everything. Notes home to my parentswere also pinned to that slip. No pants--ever. Had to know how to tie shoes and recite my full address at just Five years of agebefore admittance to kindergarten. I think we also had to show both sides of our hands--Clean Hands.Slip, dress etc--NEVER PANTS. I never wore pants to junior to high school. Even had to wear a skirt and hose in order to eat in the dorm cafeteria when I went to college in 1964. State university and public elementary. Cleveland, Ohio. By the time I finished my fourth year in college--1968==no hours no rules and you could wear or not wear anything . Wow.
