  • If the wind chill is between 0 degrees F and –10 degrees F, outdoor recess may be shortened or canceled by the principal based on local conditions.

  • If the temperature is below 50 degrees F, students need to wear a jacket.
  • If the temperature is 50 degrees F or higher, students may choose to wear or not wear their jacket.
  • In the fall and spring when it is wet and muddy, students must wear boots.
  • If it is snowy, students must wear boots, snow pants, mittens, and a hat.
