The "Magic 5" for winter recess!

Child playing in snow

It's winter again! Students should dress prepared to go outside for at least 20 minutes each day.  We go outdoors for recess and stretch breaks unless the temperature and/or wind chill are below 0 degrees.


These are the "Magic 5" items needed to play outside in the snow during their outdoor breaks:

1. Jacket
2. Snow pants
3. Boots
4. Mittens or gloves
5. Hat or hood

Students without snow pants and boots will need to remain on the blacktop area during recess to avoid wet or muddy clothing and shoes. (There are balls & jump ropes they can use on the blacktop area.)

Please contact Mrs. Robinson in the Parkside office if your family does not have the means to provide warm outdoor clothing.
