Outside Air Quality
When the air quality index is above 151, all elementary students will be kept inside for recess. (151-200 is unhealthy for all groups and 201-300 is very unhealthy for all groups.)
When the air quality index is 130-150, elementary students with respiratory problems will be kept inside for recess; other students will go out for a short time. (101-150 is unhealthy for sensitive groups.)
The district is working with the Minnesota State High School League regarding after-school activities/sports.
Outside Temperature/Wind Chill
The elementary school principals in District 199 have set the following guidelines in determining whether children will be allowed to go outside for recess: if the outside air temperature is less than 0 degrees Farenheit or the wind chill is -10 degrees or below, students will have recess indoors.
Please be sure children are dressed to be outside in the winter weather.
