Recess guidelines for snowy weather

Children are expected to join their classmates and friends at recess time. If their health limits
participation in outdoor activities, a physician’s note is required for a child to remain indoors
during their scheduled supervised recess.


Children WILL GO OUTDOORS for recess unless the wind-chill index is below 0°F or there is
inclement weather at recess time. Therefore, children should dress for the outdoors. BOOTS
and SNOW CLOTHES are required to play in snow. Otherwise, children will be asked to
remain on the blacktop area for the entire recess period.


For HEALTH and SAFETY:

● Boots cannot be worn indoors.
● Children must have a change of shoes to change into after outdoor activities.
