Winter Weather Entry

Post date: Dec 14, 2016 1:59:03 PM

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As we prepare to head into yet another NYC winter, we want to update everyone on winter weather morning entry protocols. McKinley follows New York City Department of Education policy and New York City Department of Health Guidelines regarding outdoor play in cold weather. That Policy statesChildren benefit from vigorous exercise and should be given the opportunity to play outside whenever possible. Unless it is snowing, or there is ice on the playground, or the wind chill factor produces an effective temperature below zero degrees Fahrenheit (-18 degrees Celsius), temperature alone should not be a barrier to outdoor play.”

Thank you.
