Cold Weather Guidelines
Please remember to always send children to school dressed to be outside for 30 minutes.
Minus 20 Celsius or colder including the wind-chill factor is the guideline for keeping students inside during recess and lunch. Other weather conditions such as snow storms, lightning, and rain are taken into consideration when we decide to have “indoor recess.” We check the weather before students go outside and make the best decision possible before we send children out. Depending on the day, students might be allowed to go outside for a shorter time or be encouraged to come in to warm up as needed.
