Winter Recess Policy

JJMS Winter Recess Policy


Our goal is to provide students with the opportunity to go outside during recess. JJMS administrators review the temperature and wind chill daily to determine whether our students will go outside for recess. Generally, if the wind chill factor is below 22 degrees, we will keep the students indoors. When they are indoors, they may watch a movie or go to the library.  Other activities during indoor recess, based on availability include, playing in the gym or staying in the dining room.  Please remind your children to wear hats, gloves and a winter coat each day so they are prepared and can enjoy the outdoors if that option is available.  If there is snow on the Contest Field/Track, outdoor recess may be held in the upper parking lot, if available.
