Recess Policy

We have been getting several questions regarding our policy on recess. The following is taken from the Student/Parent Handbook: Outdoor recess – All students go outdoors for recess unless they have a signed doctor’s excuse or have been asked to remain inside by a teacher or staff member.  (Outdoor recess will occur as long as weather permits.  Outdoor recess will be cancelled due to inclement conditions such as rain or temperatures falling below 10 degrees or zero degrees wind chill.  Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately.)

Indoor recess – Indoor recess requires students to stay in their individual classrooms and is held only when it is raining or the temperature is too extreme.
