My little sister always complains to me about how cold it is outside for recess, and I would like to know what the minimum temperature is that the kids are allowed outside. The district always wonders why the kids are getting colds, or even the flu, and this is obviously the reason. There should at least be an option for indoor-recess, because I don’t want the children getting sick and missing school, all because of a problem the school started! -A concerned older sister

A. Outside recess is cancelled on days when the air temperature/wind chill factor is 20 degrees.  Bad weather does not cause colds or flu. They are caused by viruses that are more likely to linger inside.
