With cold weather upon us, it is important to remind everyone of the Wheatland Elementary Winter Recess Guidelines. Students will also be going outside for some of their physical education classes throughout the Winter Season.
Students will be going outside for recess if the temperature is at or above -22 degrees Celsius (including wind-chill). If the weather is below -22 degrees Celsius (including wind-chill), students will be allowed to come into the building when arriving at school and we will conduct indoor recesses during the day. Weather in Alberta changes very quickly, so we are asking students to always come prepared with their winter clothing, regardless of the weather forecast.
Students should be appropriately dressed for the cold weather and wear or bring to school their “5 points.” When snow covers the ground students should wear a winter coat, hat, gloves, snow pants and snow boots in order to play on the playground at recess.
Parents/Guardians, you must notify the office when your child will be absent (403)934-3318. Thank you for your help with this.
