Families are reminded of the school's outside recess policy.  This information can be found in our Garfield Elementary School Handbook. 

Students will remain indoors when the temperature, with the wind chill, falls below 15 degrees Fahrenheit.  Please be sure your child is dressed for the appropriate weather.  Only in special circumstances may a student be excused from going outdoors.  A note from the parent is required at such times.  Extended requests must be accompanied by a doctor's note. (See also page 31 of the handbook.)
