Daily outdoor recesses for our students promote healthy habits. All students are expected to participate in recess activities. Adequate and appropriate clothing should be worn through all of the seasons.
During the winter months, adequate and appropriate clothing should be worn through all of the season. Boots, hats, and mittens are required during winter months. All Holt Public School Elementary Schools maintain a policy of sending students outside if the temperature and/or wind chill is above 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Please make sure students are sent to school with shoes to wear inside the building. During the fall and spring students stay inside if it is raining. As guidelines, if the temperature is below 50 degrees, students should wear a jacket and keep it on during recess.
As stated, all students are expected to go outside for recess. There are certain circumstances that will warrant a student to remain inside. If your child is too ill to go outside, we need a doctor’s note stating your child should stay inside, but that he/she is well enough to attend school. We can also accept a note from you after your child has been out for a period of time with an illness.
