P.E/ Weather Guidelines

ICI Recess Guidelines

  • The PE department will email teachers before recess to alert them if recess needs to held inside.
    • Recess will be held inside if the “Feels like” temperature at WLOS falls below 32°.
    • The PE department reserves the right to cancel outdoor recess due to temperature, air quality, wind, precipitation, or other unforeseen weather occurrences.
    • Decisions will be made based on the hourly forecast and are subject to change.
  • All students K-8 should plan on having outdoor PE/Recess every day and dress appropriately.   
    • Suggestions for proper clothing based on wind chill:
      • Below 60: Jacket and/or long sleeves
      • Below 50: Jacket and long pants
      • Below 40: Coat and preferably hat and gloves 
      • Below 30: Indoor activities.
    • Teachers may reserve the right to keep a child inside who comes to school without proper clothing.–See my note below.  
    • Students may be directed to borrow a jacket from the lost and found.

**Please review these guidelines, I will be enforcing them for my class. When below 60 degrees, students should not be wearing shorts and short-sleeved shirts to school. If you have different expectations for your child to play in cold weather without these requirements, you may send in a signed letter advising you give permission for them to play outside but know that if we decide to stay in or are advised to stay in, your champion will stay in as well.
