Cold Weather Guidelines


Since school will be in session on many cold days during the winter, it is important to make sure students are dressed appropriately to participate in outside activities. The guidelines established by District 47 during cold weather are as follows:


Temperature (Fahrenheit) with Wind Chill       Maximum Time Outside

15 degrees or warmer                                          Unlimited

Zero to 15 degrees above zero                           10 Minutes

Below zero                                                           Students remain indoors
