Playgroup Rules & Winter Recess
Please be safe and take a moment to view our PPT presentation about Playground Rules.
Make sure that your child is dressed appropriately for outdoor recess.
Please know that our elementary/intermediate schools follow the same guidelines relative to winter recess decisions. These guidelines come directly from research conducted by the district's wellness committee in consultation with the district physician. A "real feel" temperature value is used when making decisions for outdoor vs. indoor recess.
“Real Feel” Guidelines in Degrees Fahrenheit
15 and above = Full recess (K-3 buildings 30 minutes, 4-6 building 20 minutes)
10 to 14 = 15 minute recess
9 and below = Possible 5 minute brisk walk (teacher discretion).
Other local site factors that may be taken into consideration when determining the appropriateness for outdoor recess include wind gusts in the play-yard area, sun, and current blacktop / play yard conditions.
