Outdoor Recess Guidelines
The decision to go outside or stay inside for recess is the decision of the administrator at individual schools. The following are to be considered in determining if recess is to be held outside:
• Temperature and humidity
• Wind chill
• Heat index and air quality
• Age of students
• Length of time outdoors
• Adequacy of the children’s clothing
• Condition of the playground
• Falling precipitation (more than a sprinkle or mist)
• Thunder and lightning
Generally, it is assumed that students will be outside for recess when the temperature combined with the wind chill is not less than 20 degrees Fahrenheit or the heat index reading is less than 95. Please make sure your child comes to school dressed appropriately for the weather. If your child has a condition which prevents his/her from going outside for recess or PE, please provide a doctor's note which lists the temperature limitations and the time frame for which the note applies. Thanks for your help!
