It is always a question when the cold weather arrives, how we determine whether recess is indoors or outdoors. The Pennsbury School District follows the National Nurses’ Association guidelines, which recommends:
Wind chill of 25 or above - Recess outside
Wind chill of 16-25 - Brief 10-15 minutes outdoors
Wind chill less than 16 - Indoor recess
Please make sure you send children with warm coats, hats and gloves. If it is necessary for your child to remain indoors, a doctor’s note must be brought into school specifying that request. Thank you.
