Colvin Run Elementary Cold Weather Recess Guidelines (All Grades)

During typical winter days, students will go outside during the winter months.  Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately (coat, boots, gloves, and hats) for outdoor weather.  On PE days, students should have a pair of tennis shoes as well. Students may go outside if it is snowing.

How Cold is Too Cold to allow students to Play Outdoors?

  • When the wind chill/”feels like” temperature is 25 degrees or higher, teachers are advised to take their students outside for recess.  Teachers of younger grades may make adjustments to this temperature based on student attire and current weather conditions.

  • When the wind chill/”feels like” temperature is between 20-25 degrees, teachers may use their professional judgment, based on students’ attire (jackets, snow pants, boots, gloves, and hats) and current weather conditions in determining if students will go outside for recess. 

  • When the wind chill/”feels like” temperature is below 20 degrees, or there is any rain/sleet, teachers are advised to keep their students inside for recess.

Outdoor Attire

Depending on the conditions, students with boots will be allowed to play on the mulch area/soccer field, and students with tennis shoes should stay on the blacktop areas. To ensure students have ample room to play, we are making every effort to ensure the playground blacktop and basketball blacktop areas are cleared of any snow.  Due to the possibility of slipping, if there is snow on the ground, students will not be permitted to play on some of the playground equipment. For safety reasons, students will stay off any ice, hills, and cannot throw snow.

Dear Colvin Run Elementary School families, 

We are writing to encourage you to support your student(s) as they endeavor to collaborate with their Langley Pyramid peers to Rise Against Hunger. This yearly Langley Pyramid tradition is successful due to the support and commitment of our families. We held our last Rise Against Hunger event in February 2023, with our meals going to Convoy of Hope, a School Feeding Program in the Philippines. This event was a huge success and provided an outstanding service learning opportunity for children and adults of all ages.   

On Saturday, February 3, 2024, families in the Langley Pyramid are joining at Colvin Run Elementary School to help needy families. In partnership with Rise Against Hunger, the Langley Pyramid schools will prepare 75,000 meal packages for schools and orphanages worldwide. Each meal costs only 46 cents to make. For just $15, you can donate over 32 meals; $30 will make over 65 meals; $100 will make nearly 220 meals.  

Help raise money for the event: Students are encouraged to donate loose change or earned money to Rise Against Hunger. Students should bring in any money they would like to donate. Our school is collecting cash during arrival January 8 to January 31.  

Donate money online:  In order to reach our goal of 75,000 meals, the Langley Pyramid needs to raise $35,000 by January 31st . If your company makes matching contributions, please consider having them join you in making a tax-deductible donation today at Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger 2024 and help us Rise Against Hunger.

On the day of the event, volunteers package meals based on the amount of money raised, so it is recommended that if you wish to volunteer for the event, please make a monetary donation.    

We package meals based on the amount of money raised and our Langley pyramid goal is $35,000 which provides 75,000 meals. With each meal feeding 5-6 people, this is a wonderful event that impacts over 400,000 individuals around the world and broadens the perspective of our students and families. 

Sincerely, 

Mr. Junge, Mr. Soderstrom, and Mrs. Friedman

About Rise Against Hunger 

Rise Against Hunger is a 3-star rated organization that sends nutrient-rich, dehydrated meal packages to developing countries around the world.  In those countries, the meal packages are delivered to families through the schools.  In developing countries, children may not attend school to receive a formal education, so in part to this program, more children are being encouraged to attend school to receive a hot meal at school and additional meal packages for their families.  As an additional benefit, more children are also receiving a formal education.

This is a great event for the whole family! Don't miss out.  Please email [email protected] if you have any questions. 

Sincerely, 

Mr. Junge, Mr. Soderstrom, and Mrs. Friedman
