A recess break is provided for all children at their lunch period. Additional recess breaks are at the discretion of the classroom teacher. Precipitation, wind speed and low temperatures can cause recess breaks to be held inside. Cotton Creek policy is whenever any combination of these factors takes the wind chill temperature below 20 degrees, recess will be held indoors.
Due to the temperate Colorado climate, students are generally sent outdoors for recess. Your student should dress appropriately for the season, and should wear warm clothing and boots during cold and wet weather.
