  • NYC Chancellor's Cold Weather Guidance

    January, 2023

    Dear PS147 Families,

    Studies have shown that children benefit from outdoor play.  As a result, I would like to bring to your attention the guidelines shared with Principals on January 4, 2023 for outdoor play during the winter months of the school year. 

    Guidelines for Outdoor Play in Cold Weather
    Children benefit from vigorous exercise and should be given the opportunity to play outside whenever possible. Unless it is snowing, there is ice on the playground, or the wind chill factor produces an effective temperature below zero degrees Fahrenheit (-18 degrees Celsius), temperature alone should not be a barrier to outdoor play. 

    As per the NYCDOE Chancellor’s Guidelines, all public schools are encouraged to work with their staff on maintaining outdoor play periods.  Students are to be sent to school daily dressed warmly and take precautions ensuring that they are appropriately dressed on very cold days. When outdoors, students and staff are to cover exposed skin, wear warm clothing, and use multiple layers to maintain warmth. 

    In addition, as per the NYCDOE Chancellor’s Guidelines, students who need to avoid the cold weather for medical reasons must submit a note from their healthcare provider to the school nurse. 

    I hope that this information clarifies guidelines relative to outdoor play.  As always, if you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

    Thank you,

    Ms. Sandra Noyola
