Please have your child dress for the weather.
Here are a few reminders:
1. Students will be outside for recess unless the temperature falls below 0◦ with the wind chill factor.
2. Students are allowed to play in the snow as long as they have proper winter attire (hats, gloves/mittens, coat, snow pants, boots). Students who do not have ALL of these items will play on the blacktop areas.
A note from Nurse Ruth
Does cold weather cause Colds?
In terms of infectious illnesses, germs make you sick, not cold weather itself. You have to come in contact with rhinoviruses to catch a cold. And you need to be infected with influenza viruses to contract the flu. Rhinoviruses peak in spring and fall, and influenza viruses peak in winter. Spending more time indoors in cold weather actually foster the spread of viruses.
