When does your child's school keep them inside for recess?
At my son's school, they go outside in the winter unless its below 0* windchill. We've had about a week of winchills below 0* - and for much of it, the actual air temp was also below 0*. I think our high for yesterday was 0. So there has been lots of indoor recess (thank goodness they still get to run around & play in the gym so they are still active).
Today we've been up to at least 23*. It feels so nice out! LOL! The kids loved getting to play outside for recess - I happened to see my son as he was going in - hat covered in snow, coat & snow pants wet from playing on the snow hill (the snow plowed off the parking lot).
Someone on another post said her kids stay in if its below 25 (state law). I'm really glad we don't have that law - they would rarely get to play outside during the winter & would have missed this gorgeous day.
What's the policy at your child's school for when they stay inside during the winter? What do they do when they have to stay in - do they still play in the gym or are they in the classroom doing quieter activities?
