Cold Weather Guidelines

Due to the many changes in weather this time of year we recommend students are prepared for whatever the day may bring. Please make sure your child is prepared with a warm jacket, hat, gloves, etc. If your child wishes to play in the snow at recess they must wear snow pants and boots or they will be asked to stay on the blacktop. Please also make sure your child has gym shoes on the days they have PE. Due to rain or snow it may also be a good idea to keep an extra pair of pants and socks in your child's locker. Please label your child's items. The guidelines established by District 47 during cold weather are as follows:

  • 15 degrees or warmer - Unlimited time spent outside
  • Zero to 15 degrees above zero - 20 minutes of time spent outside
  • Below zero - Students remain indoors
