  • no if school is open I would send them. I would ask the school what they plan to do for recess time. I would haope they wouldnt send them outside in that kind of weather.

  • No if the schools are open my kids are going it drops below 30degrees where i live all the time. we seen temps in the low teens and our kids still go to school unless theres to much snow or ice on the ground for people to get around.

  • I would send them bundled up and I would drive them instead of having them take the bus.

  • In Alaska the kids are not allowed to go out at recess if it is -10 degrees but they do attend school.

  • No. If the school is open, they go unless they are ill.

    The elementary kids will have indoors recess/recesses. The older kids don't have recess, so they just scurry from car to school as fast as quickly.

  • If it were that cold here, school would be closed because the busses wouldn't run (the fuel gels & freezes if it is too cold), but if school were open, yep, I'd send him.
