Outdoor/Indoor Recess

The decision to go out or remain indoors for recess is made by Mr. Testani, in concert with our medical staff, based on weather conditions. The goal is to allow the children to play outside whenever the weather conditions permit. The wind-chill factor is the primary factor. The children remain outside for the full recess period provided the wind-chill is above 15 degrees. A wind-chill of between 10 and 15 degrees will result in an abbreviated outdoor recess. The children will have indoor recess in the event of rain, snow, or wind chills below 10 degrees.
