MINNESOTA SEVER WEATHER AWARENESS

Weather Warning Terms

The National Weather Service uses the words, "watch" and "warning" to alert you to potentially dangerous weather.


Watch - Be Alert!

A watch means weather conditions are favorable for dangerous weather to occur. In other words, a "watch" means watch out for what the weather could do, and be ready to act accordingly.


Warnings - Act Now!

A warning means the weather event is imminent or occurring somewhere in the defined warning area and that people need to take shelter as soon as possible.

DRESS FOR THE WEATHER

Please be sure your child is dressed appropriately for winter weather. Students spend twenty minutes outside for noon recess. Winter coats, gloves or mittens, and hats are required to make their time outside more enjoyable.


If the temperature is below 0º Fahrenheit, or the wind chill is around that level, we will keep the students inside during recess.

STUDENT WELL-BEING

As we continue to look to support our students’ mental health and well-being, please connect with your child’s classroom teacher, school social worker , or building principal with any questions, concerns or safety related issues.
