Posted January 6, 2016 - Cold Weather Ahead!
Cold Weather Outdoor Recess Protocol Revised
Ball-Chatham principals and superintendent met in December to review current procedures for determining when our schools would hold outdoor recess. Principals had referred to the Child Care Weather Watch chart as a basis for recommending to hold outdoor recess if the “feels like” temperature was 18 degrees or higher. However, after discussion the team agreed to amend the practice to hold outdoor recess if the “feels like” temperature is 20 degrees or higher.
As always, when school is in session during these cold winter months please ensure that your children are dressed as warmly as possible (multiple layers), and that outerwear is rated for sub-zero temperatures.
