OUTDOOR VS. INDOOR RECESS

Cold weather has officially arrived in Chicago! Please be sure to send your students to school with appropriate clothing for the cold weather. We rely on indoor recess as a last resort, and send students outside whenever weather permits. As a guide, we have outdoor recess when the temperature (actual or “feels like”) is at 20 degrees or above. If the temperature is below 15, we only offer indoor recess for safety reasons. When the temperature is between 15 and 20 degrees, we offer students the option of indoor or outdoor recess.
