Cold Weather Recess Policy

Not accounting for windchill factor, teachers will use the guidelines below, as well as their best professional judgement and common sense to determine what is appropriate for their class:
Children will eat outdoors and may make the choice about coats, etc.:  about 41°F and above
Teachers will encourage the wearing of coats, hats, and gloves for recess:  about 40°F and below

Eating will likely occur indoors with outdoor recess following one of the below guidelines:  about 40°F and below
Normal outdoor recess:  26°F and above
Shortened outdoor recess (5 to 10 minutes):  18°F-25°F
Indoor recess:  18°F and below
