How Cold Is Too Cold for Recess?

thermometer-freezing-cold

We all expect a cold winter in Wyoming. But, how cold is too cold for recess? All Albany County schools follow the same protocol. If it’s zero or above with the wind chill kids are outside. If there is anything negative with the wind chill, we stay inside. Beitel uses the weather station at our school district transportation department on Skyline Road as a guide. It’s about a mile away from our school as the crow flies. You can see the same information that we do at this link:

Inside OR outside, it’s the time of year to make sure that coats, gloves, hats, and outdoor gear are worn to school every day.
