Guidelines for Winter Weather Recess

All students must wear snow pants and boots if they want to play in the snow.  If students do not have boots they will be asked to stay on the shoveled areas of the track and blacktop.  


We keep in mind district suggested guidelines for determining WHEN students go outside for recess, etc.  If falling snow is very wet or the playground is very icy, the supervisor on duty will decide whether students should come indoors.

Temperature guidelines that we follow are:

  • If 10 degrees or below – STAY IN
  • If wind chill is 0 or below – STAY IN
