Cold Weather Guidelines

When the temperature and/or wind chill is at 0 degrees or below, students will not go outside for recess and safety patrol will not be on duty outside.  These are maximum wind chill guidelines.  If at any time the recess supervisor(s) believe it is too cold, he/she will bring students inside regardless of time or temperature.


Students will be expected to have appropriate warm clothing for weather conditions.  Recess is an important part of the school day as children need time to expend energy and soak up fresh air. 


Parents - please be sure your students come to school with appropriate warm clothing for outside recess!  It is important that they have caps, mittens or gloves, and boots and snowpants for play in the snow.  Winter clothing will not be available for students to borrow during the school day.
