  • Guidance for Outdoor Play in Cold Weather

    Guidance for Outdoor Play in Cold Weather                                                                                        

     All schools    

    Workflow Subcategory: Health

     Children benefit from vigorous exercise and should be given the opportunity to play outside whenever possible. Unless it is snowing, or there is ice on the playground, or the wind chill factor produces an effective temperature below zero degrees Fahrenheit (-18 degrees Celsius), temperature alone should not be a barrier to outdoor play. You are encouraged to work with your staff to maintain outdoor play periods, and you should take precautions to keep students warm and to ensure that they are appropriately dressed on very cold days. When outdoors, please ensure that your students and staff cover exposed skin, wear warm clothing, and use multiple layers to maintain warmth.

    If student does not choose to play outdoors on colder days, they are permitted to remain indoors.
