District Policy Regarding Temperature and Inside Recess

If the "feels like" temperature is 0 degrees F or above it is School District # 5 policy that recess will be outside. We use www.weather.com’s “Feels Like” temperature to make our determinations. In the morning that decision will be made at 8:00 am as that is when we have outside supervision. Those who come for breakfast at 7:45 am will be kept inside until 8:00 am if there is a temperature concern.
