Wind Chill Chart

Wind Chill Chart & Indoor Recesses – The AASD follows the National Weather Service’s Wind Chill Chart while determining when to hold indoor recess due to cold weather. We will hold indoor recess or have students enter the building before school in the following conditions.

  • Before School – Students will be allowed in the building at 8:10 a.m. if the air temperature is 5 degree (above zero) or colder or the wind chill is in the dark blue area of the chart. Students who are having breakfast should arrive at 8:00 a.m. Please do not send your children for breakfast before 8:00 a.m. OR before 8:10 a.m. if they are not eating breakfast.
  • Recess Times – Students will have indoor recess, if the temperature or wind chill is in the dark blue area (darkest area in black & white printed charts), on the NWS Wind Chill Chart (this is minus 18 degrees or colder). When temperatures are in the light blue area (gray area in black & white printed charts), it is considered the safe zone and students may be sent outdoors for recess.
