With last week’s severe low temperatures, our elementary and early childhood playground woodchips are frozen. Since they no longer provide “fall protection” we cannot allow students to use the playground equipment (ex. platforms, swings, climbing apparatus, etc.). Our grounds department will evaluate throughout the Winter/Spring seasons and advise when you may once again begin using the playground equipment.
Just a reminder that during the winter we will go outside for recess if the wind chill index is at five (5) degrees or above. The wind chill report will be obtained from the National Weather Service. Students are expected to dress appropriately for recess with hats, gloves, boots and winter coats. Snow pants and boots are also required to play in the snow. All students participate in recess unless a doctor’s note is provided to school. Bad weather and black top conditions dictate the frequency of indoor recesses.
