Outdoor Recess Guidelines 2023-2024

As often as possible, New Field will send students outside for recess. To help you plan accordingly, please be aware of the following general guidelines:

  • All students have recess for at least 30 minutes per day
  • Generally, students will go outside for recess when the temperature and/or wind chill is above 22 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Students will go outside for recess in light snow/ precipitation
  • Students will go outside for recess when there is light or residual snow on the playgrounds

Please be sure to send your children with warm clothing, including hats, gloves and coats.

Do you need assistance with warm clothing? New Field can help!

Please contact your child's teacher or our main office, (773) 534-2760 or newfieldcps@gmail.com
