Dear Primary Parents,
The weather is getting colder and the safety and wellbeing of our students is important to us. Knowing younger students as we do, The Primary Team in conjunction with Ms. Lofgren, have decided outdoor recess is an important element to a successful school day and we wish to support it throughout the winter months. Students will continue to go outside for lunchtime recess this winter unless the temperature and/or wind chill is below 15 degrees (The temperature will be determined through www.weather.com). All students should wear a warm coat, hat and gloves to school daily. If students want to play in the snow they must have snow boots and snow pants, as well as hats, and gloves. Students who do not have snow boots and snow pants, will be required to remain on the blacktop area during the recess period when snow is on the ground. This is to ensure students are not wet and cold during afternoon classes. Please also make sure to put your child’s name in ALL of their items. This will help us find things easier if they get lost or misplaced. Thank you in advance with your help and cooperation with this cold weather recess policy. If you have any questions please let us know.
The Primary Team
