Weather Guidelines for Recess
Cold Weather Guidelines for Elementary
It is the elementary school’s procedure that during cold weather, the decision for outside recess and activities will be based on weather as listed on the Accuweather website (www.accuweather.com) for Wright City, Mo. If the air temperature or “feels like” temperature is at or below 25°F, no outdoor activities or outdoor recess will be held. Indoor recess will be available to students.
Extremely cold weather can be very dangerous. Parents and guardians should be certain that their children are appropriately clothed with mittens, hats, coats, etc., so they can be comfortable both inside and outside. Most days your student will be going outside for some period of time either at recess or traveling to/from school.
Heat Advisory Guidelines for Elementary
A primary focus of our teachers and staff is to ensure that we provide our children with a safe and caring learning environment during school and while traveling to and from school. Consistent with this commitment, we have established the following procedures to safeguard elementary students that aligns with the MSHSAA recommendations for heat/humidity levels. Outdoor activities and outdoor recess will be indoors when the wet bulb globe thermometer reads 90 or higher on the heat bulb device.
Please take special precautions on extremely hot days including dressing your children in lightweight clothing, limiting outdoor activity and drinking plenty of fluids. We look forward to a safe and healthy school year.
