PLAYGROUND AND RECESS Recess on the playground allows time for students to expend some energy, exercise their bodies, and get fresh air and sunshine. Safety is of utmost importance. Thoughtfulness, courtesy, and common sense, along with constant supervision from the playground aides and parent volunteers prevent needless accidents. Specific playground rules are posted and reviewed with students by the classroom teachers on the first day and week of school and periodically as needed. Students who choose not to follow playground rules will have “time outs,” lose playground privileges or recess, and may receive a citation. Each child should be sent to school with the thought that outdoor activity is part of the daily program. Students are expected to participate in outdoor recess unless excused by a physician with a written note from the parent. If children need to stay in more than two days, then a note or fax from the child’s doctor is required. It is imperative that warm clothing such a gloves, hats, and boots be worn during cold weather months. When the weather is inclement, recess will be held inside. Students are assembled and involved in quiet activities under the supervision of an aide and parent volunteer.
