Winter is the season of the year that we see a lot of colds and other respiratory infections. Although there is some controversy regarding the common cold and how we get one, scientists and doctors do seem to agree we don’t get colds from cold weather.
If students dress properly, being outside and getting a little exercise can do more to help improve our heath than harm it. Please don’t ask to have your child stay in from recess because of a cold. If your doctor wishes to have your child remain inside, please have him/her write an excuse, which we will keep on file in the office. You can be sure that if the wind chill factor is too low, we will keep all children inside. Please see the wind-chill chart that we use to determine inside or outside recess.
