In the case of extreme temperature or inclement weather, we are diligent about student safety. Students will remain inside when the wind chill is 36° or below or when the heat index is 95° and above.
Elementary school students in Arkansas will get at least 40 minutes a day of recess under legislation approved earlier this year by the General Assembly.
Act 641 of 2019 amends state law concerning the school day. It requires at least 40 minutes of each day be used for recess, which will be outdoors when the weather allows. Recess will be unstructured, although of course it will be supervised.
Recess includes opportunities for free play and vigorous physical activity, whether it takes place inside or outside.
