Fresh air, exercise and free play are excellent for children. Which is why we try to get our kids outside during recess even when it is cold! If the "feels like" temperature is 20 or above the kids will have recess. We also look at other factors, for example, if the playground is a sheet of ice, it is raining hard etc we may have indoor recess instead.

PLEASE make sure your student is ready for recess every day. It is a great idea for kids to keep a hat and gloves in their backpack/cubby/locker. Also make sure your student has a warm jacket and play shoes. If you need assistance with winter gear for your student please contact the school.
