Cold Weather Procedures
Parents are reminded that students must be dressed suitably for the weather. This includes: coats, hats, gloves or mittens, scarves, socks and winter boots. If your child is in need of any of the above items, call Ms. Diane at the school and we may be able to assist you.
Students will not be sent outside if the weather conditions, as outlined by Environment Canada, drop to –18 C or colder, including the wind chill, or if other severe weather conditions occur. Remember that students are outside for recess for 15 minutes each day and need to be dressed for the weather.
If students walk to school, they must be dressed for the walk and time to wait for the bell to ring. Students are asked to arrive at school as close to bell times as possible during cold weather.
Students attending our lunchroom program must be suitably dressed for outdoors over the lunch hour. Decisions regarding severe weather will be made each day through Environment Canada, in the same manner as the recess decision is made.
