Dear PS 20 Families:
Please make sure that your child is properly dressed for the cold weather.
Students will be going outside to play during the cold winter months.
Current DOE policy stipulates: "Children 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, low temperatures should not be a barrier to outside play, as long as children are appropriately dressed. The Health Department strongly encourages Principals to maintain outdoor play periods during the vast majority of winter days".
If you have any questions or concerns contact the school during school hours.
