At the discretion of the classroom teacher, students may have a 10-15 minute outdoor morning recess period, weather permitting. In addition, students in grades 1-4 have an outdoor recess for 10 or 15 minutes before or after eating lunch. If there are medical reasons for which a student cannot participate in outside recess, a note is required. Otherwise, if well enough to be in school, students are expected to go outside for recess. Students should be dressed appropriately, particularly in cold weather.
EARLY RELEASE AND CURRICULUM DAYS
There are early release days on a number of Wednesdays during the school year, primarily for parent/teacher conferences. Students are dismissed at 11:40 AM and no lunch is served that day. The Burbank After School Program (BASP) operates on early dismissal days. As the school lunch program is unavailable on these days, children in After-Care must bring a bag lunch with them to school.
