If the temperature falls below 10°F, the younger students will remain inside. The older students may be given half inside and half outside recess, depending on the weather conditions at the time of their recess.
If there is an unusual amount of icing and conditions are unsafe, the children will stay inside.
Please be sure that your child is appropriately dressed for the weather conditions. Warm jackets, hats, gloves and boots make recess time more enjoyable!
