Thank you to Coats for Angels

Thanks to Coats for Angels for giving our neediest children appropriate clothing for the winter!



Now that the weather is cooling off, remember to dress students appropriately.

Per the Office of Student Health and Wellness indicating the new guidelines for outdoor recess:

Weather Is Turning Colder, Make Sure Students Are Getting Outside For Recess!

Cold air does not make us sick, germs make us sick. Make sure students are getting outside for recess/ gross motor time at your school! Outdoor recess time allows children to get fresh air, provides an opportunity for children to engage in moderate to vigorous physical activity and gives students more activity options than most indoor spaces. The Office of Student Health and Wellness recommends using 20 degrees F with or without windchill as the threshold for keeping students in for recess. Please see the following CPS cold weather guidelines for outdoor recess:

Cold Weather Guidelines:
  • Above 32 degrees F with or without wind chill: Recess should be held outdoors.
  • Between 31 degrees F and 15 degrees F with or without wind chill: Principal discretion.
  • Below 15 degrees F with or without wind chill: Recess should be held indoors.


Parents interested in working for the Safe Passage program can call 773-823-1062. Padres interesados en participar en el programa de Camino Seguro pueden llamar al 773-823-1062.
