Winter Weather

Despite the drop in temperature children will be going outside for recess and lunch so they need to dress appropriately – hat, warm coat, mitts, scarf and boots. When temperature and/or wind-chill factor indicates -20 to -28C, recesses may be shortened to 10 minutes and lunch recess is 20 minutes depending on local conditions. Children will be monitored closely for signs of frostnip, frostbite or difficulty breathing.


When temperature and/or wind chill factor indicates -28C or lower children will remain indoors due to risk of frostnip and frostbite.
