In the event that the temperature and/or wind chill is 0 degrees or below, students will remain inside. If the temperature and/or wind chill is above 0 degrees, students will go outside. Parents should make sure their children are dressed appropriately for these conditions.
When snow can be found on the playground, ALL students are required to wear boots. Junior kindergarten through grade three are required to wear snow pants. If students in grades four and five would like to play in the snow areas, they must also wear snow pants. Snow pants are not required if they remain on their feet - on the playground. During the winter months, all students must have shoes for indoor use and snow boots for outdoors.
The school believes in having outdoor recess as often as possible and understands that it is important in the overall health of our students. If your child needs any winter clothing items, please let the office know. We have many hats, mittens, etc. that have been donated to our school. Arrangements for coats, snow pants, and boots can also be made.
