Elementary Weather Guidelines

Cold Weather Guidelines for Elementary

It is the District’s policy that during cold weather, the decision for outside recess and activities will be based on weather as listed on the website for the Mizzou weather station in Moscow Mills, MO. If the air temperature or wind chill is 20°F or lower, no outdoor activities or outdoor recess will be held.  Indoor recess will be available to students.

Extremely cold weather can be very dangerous. Parents and guardians should be certain that their children are appropriately clothed with mittens, hats, coats, etc., so they can be comfortable both inside and outside. Most days your student is going outside for some period of time either at recess or traveling to/from school. 

Heat Advisory Guidelines for Elementary

A primary focus of our teachers and staff is to ensure that we provide our children with a safe and caring learning environment during school and while traveling to and from school. Consistent with this commitment, we have established the following procedures to safeguard elementary students when a heat advisory is issued:  

Please take special precautions on extremely hot days including dressing your children in lightweight clothing, limiting outdoor activity and drinking plenty of fluids.  We look forward to a safe and healthy school year.

  • Temperature/Heat Index of 99°F or lower--Normal recess will be held. 
  • Temperature/Heat Index of 100°F or higher--Indoor recess will be held.
