A Monday Hello from Mrs. MacQueen

After a beautiful weekend it's hard for me to write about winter and cold weather! Although we were spared any snow from last week's nor'easter, we know it's coming soon. When the weather turns cold it always elicits questions about dressing for outdoor recess.

Recess is an important part of our school day and our students need daily, healthy playtime outdoors. To really enjoy recess they must be properly dressed for the weather. If we are experiencing unusually cold weather where the temperature is in the single digits or it is raining, we will usually not go out for morning or lunch recess. However, students do go out for recess when the temperature is above10 degrees.

wse111212 2Please make sure your child has a coat, gloves, hat, snow pants and boots for when the snow arrives. Shorts should not be worn for recess play. Dressing for outdoor weather allows children to enjoy this fun part of their day. If they don't have boots and there is snow on the ground, they will still go outside and have to stand on the blacktop. It is much more fun to run and play in the snow so PLEASE make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the cold weather season.
