Recess Cold Weather Guidelines:  We will intend to go outside everyday as long as the temperature or wind chill is at least 15 degrees F, and it is not precipitating (we might go out if it is snowing as long as the play surface is safe). For temperatures or wind chills between 15-29 degrees F, we will be outside for half of the scheduled recess time and indoors for the remaining half of the scheduled recess time.  Temperatures of 30 degrees F or above will allow for full outdoor recess. 

If 14 degrees F or below (temperature or wind chill), we will not go out.

Between 15 and 40 degrees F, children must wear: Winter coat, closed shoes or boots, Stocking caps and gloves are recommended

Between 41 and 50 degrees F, children must wear:  Winter coat or heavy jacket over long sleeved clothing, closed shoes or boots, Stocking caps and gloves are optional

Between 51 and 60 degrees F, children must wear:  Winter coat or heavy jacket or sweatshirt/hoodie, closed shoes or boots, Stocking caps and gloves are optional

Parents and care givers are encouraged to monitor their children’s clothing selections to make sure they are prepared for colder temperatures and are appropriately dressed for outdoor recesses.  Please label your children’s winter clothes so if they misplace them we can get them returned. 

Children reporting to school without proper winter attire will not be permitted to participate in outdoor recess.  This is done to keep our students safe and healthy.
