Indoor/Outdoor Recess: please send your students with proper winter attire anticipating outdoor recesses. Students may have a full recess, a shortened recess or an indoor recess. If students are staying indoors it is expected that they remain in their classroom, partaking in a quiet activity. Decisions on indoor/outdoor recesses are made at the school level and are predicated on a variety of things including:
Our school follows the Environment Canada Weather Website. When the combined temp and wind chill is -30 or colder, students will remain indoors for recess. If the temperature is between -25 and -29 we will try to head outside for a shortened recess body break, dependent on conditions.
For more information please feel free to contact the school.
Busing: Buses do not run if the combined temperature/wind chill factors result in a reading of -40 degrees Celsius or below at 6:00 a.m. If conditions improve or temperature warms up for in the afternoon, busses may run at the end of the day. PSSD will update their website at 6:00 a.m. and also at 12:30 p.m. if busses are to run at the end of the day.
