Recess Guidelines

During the winter months, there are safety guidelines that students need to be aware of for outside recess play. When the snow hits the ground, students are going to want to play in it.

recess guidelines1
Recess Guidelines
  • Snow is for sharing…there is always room for one more to help build a fort!
  • No throwing snow or ice.
  • No kicking snow or ice at others.
  • Do not destroy what others have created.
  • Take excess snow off boots and clothes before coming inside.
  • No hard balls or throwing objects outside during the winter months.
  • No sliding or tobogganing during recess times. You can slide and toboggan during Snow Carnival Day or with your class and teacher during DPA or gym class time.

Students should also follow the direction of the supervision staff about playing on snow piles. Sometimes these piles will be deemed off-limits. School winter safety policies are designed to protect everyone on school property from injury.

Dress Properly

Students need to be aware of temperatures and wind chills to make proper clothing choices. Heavy coats, hats, mitts and boots are essential. Snow pants are a good idea as well. Even if students stay inside for recesses, travel to and from school can be cold.

We keep an eye on the weather most days but especially during the winter. We follow the general guideline that if the wind chill measures between -16 and -19 degrees, students stay inside over lunch hour but they still go out at recess. At  -20 degrees, students are in all day.

early dismissal
Early Dismissal

Our school has practical plans for school closures and early dismissals due to severe snow or ice, extreme cold or unsafe road conditions. Your parents completed an “Emergency Closure Form” at the beginning of the school year. Be sure you know what you need to do in case the school has to close early. If you are a bus student, you will just get on the bus as usual. If you are a walker, you may have different procedures to follow than your regular day.

Cancelled Buses

If the buses are cancelled, the school is still open and walkers are expected to attend. If a bus student gets driven to school, they need to make arrangements to be picked up as well. If buses are cancelled, they are cancelled for the whole day.

Families should have access to radio or television reports or the WCSDB web site regarding severe weather watches and warnings relayed to their school. If the school is closed, buses will be cancelled and the school will be closed for the whole day.
