Winter Weather Readiness
Parents, we appreciate your cooperation in helping your child be ready for winter weather. At both of our campuses, students go outside for recess each day for up to 20 minutes. We currently send students out until the combined temperature and wind-chill reaches –10 degrees. This means that our students must be ready for the cold. Boots, hats, mittens, scarves, and snow pants are important items while staying warm during winter play. Thank you for helping your child be weather-wise.
Winter Recess Expectations:
With the snow comes new recess expectations….
- Students will take advantage of outdoor recess as long as the temps are –10 degrees or warmer. Please wear appropriate winter clothing. Students are only allowed to stay inside with a doctor's note.
- Children with boots may play in the snow. Those in shoes will stay on the sidewalk.
- Only mother nature can throw snow!
- You are welcome to play on snow hills as long as there is no pushing or digging of interior tunnels.
