Recess is an important part of a child’s school day. A safe and healthy recess promotes time to develop socially, emotionally, physically, and academically.
During recess, students learn and practice important social and emotional skills, such as conflict resolution, decision- making, compromise, and self-regulation. Additionally, recess provides a needed brain break and facilitates the learning process. With this in mind, the following procedures will be put in place to insure our students have a safe recess.
To the best extent possible, recess will continue applying safe physical contact of equipment and social distancing. The term “social distancing” refers to measures being taken to restrict where and when people can gather to stop or slow the spread of infectious disease. In general, six feet of separation is the distance that should be kept between people interacting within their peers. Games that utilize physical and social activities, yet limit physical contact will be played.
