STUDENT ARRIVAL, RECESS & DISMISSAL

Many years ago, schools were advised to keep children inside when the temperature is below 32 degrees. 

Research shows that children need fresh air, exercise, and sunshine.  Physical activity is not only healthy for a child’s body, but it also stimulates brain activity.  Play-whether vigorous or sedentary-can provide intense skill learning.  Physical activity is known to lessen the symptoms of mild attention deficit disorder, and is associated with much lower incidences of childhood obesity.  A daily break of fifteen minutes or more in the school day plays a role in improving learning, social development, and health in elementary school children.

Children benefit from vigorous exercise and should be given the opportunity to play outside whenever possible as long as children are appropriately dressed, (hats, gloves, winter coat, and boots).  Note that occasionally, children with asthma may experience increased symptoms when playing in cold weather (however, exercise-related asthma may occur at any temperature and can usually be prevented by pre-treatment).

Unless it is raining or there is an unsafe condition, your children will be outdoors.

Thank you for your cooperation.
