The cold, snowy weather has finally arrived. It is important to remember that our recess policy is that all students will go outdoors for recess. The exception to that policy is if the temperature (with the wind chill) is between -15°C and -19°C: students may remain outside for no longer than 20 minutes at a time and when temperatures are colder than -19°C: the students will remain inside. Please have your children wear winter coats, snow pants, boots, gloves and a hat to school every day. It is strongly recommended to bring an extra pair of socks, mitts and a hat in case they get wet throughout the course of the day. Please remember to check your child’s coat and boots regularly so ensure proper fit. Students are also required to have a pair of indoor shoes that are to remain at school to wear during the day.
