Recess Policy

Outdoor recess is the priority for students in schools where recess is facilitated. Outdoor recess is at the discretion of the building principal and may be cancelled at any time based upon the following weather conditions:

1. Precipitation: rain, misting, drizzling, freezing rain, sleet, snow
2. Temperatures below 20 degrees Fahrenheit
3. Wind chill factors causing perceived temperatures below 20 degrees
4. Temperatures 90 degrees Fahrenheit and above (consult with Norwalk Health Department)
5. In the unlikely event that a field or typical recess area is out of commission during recess time, the building principal or his/her designee may change said location of recess or cancel recess, until further notice, at his/her discretion.
