Cold & Inclement Weather

We believe that students benefit from and enjoy active time outdoors, but also hold student safety as a top priority.

We use -30 degrees Celsius as a guideline to determine whether we will send students outside or not at recess. School administration uses the latest Environment Canada (Saskatoon) information and checking local weather conditions to aid in these decisions.

The administration’s decision making process is:

At combined (air & wind) temperatures of -29 degrees Celsius or warmer:

  • It will normally be an outside recess day.

At combined (air & wind) temperatures of -30 or colder:

  • It will be an indoor (RED) recess.

Inclement weather conditions such as blizzards, rain, lightning, high winds may result in the administration making the decision to keep students in at recess. Student safety is our priority.
