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.

After School in the Dog House!

Families seeking an after school option can be part of the Dog House! We'll be offering after school care until 4:05 in Mr. Weast's classroom at Beitel. Mr. Weast, Mr. Oyler, and other Beitel teachers will be working with your students. Whether you need just a few minutes while picking up a middle schooler or help with the full hour, the Dog House can lend a hand. Best of all it's free to Beitel families. Transportation home or to alternate care is available within the Beitel attendance area. Call the Beitel office with questions and to sign up: 721-4436
