Inclement Weather Procedures for Outdoor Activities

  • When cold weather is upon us, buildings will access Accuweather© for the area http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/walla-walla-wa/99362/weather-forecast/331420

  • If either the “real feel” (which takes into account both wind chill and solar heat) or the actual temperature is below 15 degrees, buildings will make accommodations to house students inside for recess and/or pe pursuant to national guidelines (chart below).

  • The district will also ask that staff carefully monitor students while outside and take necessary steps to ensure students are appropriately clothed/prepared for the cold weather play, watching for signs of frostbite, other cold-related issues, and/or associated medical conditions that may require modifications to certain student situations.
