2016-2017 School YEAR

Dear RISD Families,

I’m happy to inform you that elementary recess minutes have been adjusted for the 2016-2017 school year in conjunction with the revisions to the elementary instructional time standards. This new standard was developed with careful consideration for students’ instructional and physical needs.

The following list outlines grades and times

K - 30 Minutes
1 - 30 Minutes
2 - 30 Minutes
3 - 30 Minutes
4 - 20 Minutes
5 - 20 Minutes
6 - 15 Minutes

Recess is expected to occur on a daily basis and will be designated in the campus and teacher schedules. Campus principals will have the flexibility to schedule recess in one or more blocks of time during the day (Example: one – thirty minute block or two – fifteen minute blocks, etc.). Additionally, elementary curriculum will designate appropriate opportunities in lessons for brain breaks and opportunities to move.

You will receive more information as next year begins. Additional information about recess will be included in the Student and Parent Guidebook. Thank you for a wonderful school year. I wish you and your family a fun and restful summer!
