Inclement Weather

It is important that the students are provided a break from the rigors of classroom instruction, and that they have the opportunity for physical exercise and fresh air.  Please ensure that your child is dressed with appropriate winter clothing (a warm jacket, mittens/gloves, scarf, toque, and boots).  For children in younger grades snow pants are advised.  Students are expected to go outside at our recess breaks unless an indoor recess is called.

A decision to call an indoor recess will be based on a temperature of -23 depending on wind chill) according to the Weather Network (  A decision to call an indoor recess will always be made 15-20 minutes before a recess bell.

On days where administration determines that weather conditions warrant early entry (before the morning bell), students will be allowed to enter and remain in the student gathering area (SGA) until class entry time.  Appropriate behavior is expected.
