Winter weather conditions sometime warrant indoor recess, lunch and pre-entry periods for the safety of students and staff. Refer to the following guidelines:
When temperature and/or wind chill factor indicates -28C or lower, students will remain indoors due to risk of frostnip and frostbite.
When temperature and/or wind chill factor indicates –20 to –28C, recesses may be shortened to 10 minutes and lunch recess be 20 minutes depending on local conditions. Students should be monitored for signs of frostnip, frostbite or difficulty breathing.
