Cold Temperatures Expected

With the extremely cold temperatures expected this week it is important that students dress for the weather when coming to school. Please see the image for some guidelines with respect to dressing for the cold.

During very poor weather students will be permitted to play appropriately inside. Given the protection offered by our surrounding area, when temperatures are in the range of -10 to -15 degrees at the school, students are typically expected to play outside as long as the windchill isn’t too bad. When the temperature drops below -15 degrees at the school there is a good chance students will have an indoor recess. The decision whether or not to have an indoor recess rests with the principal and is based on a number of factors (ie. temperature at the school, windchill, shelters available, length of time outside, etc.).

Please note, if your child is “too ill” to play outside at lunch and recess, they should not be at school. This policy is in place to protect the health of all students, staff and guests at Parkview.winter-dress-infographic
