At Irvine we have West Coast Recess. We very rarely keep students inside due to the weather conditions. Many schools in the district are doing the same. Fresh air helps all students to take a break and maintain focus during work time. Please ensure that your child is well prepared for rain on any given day. The biggest complaint our students have on rainy days is that they are cold so we encourage them to bring an extra sweater and bundle up.
Being prepared for the weather
- Wear a rain coat
- Wear rubber boots so they can enjoy the puddles (if you are able to provide them with a pair to keep at school that would be perfect)
- Wear “muddy buddies” – rain pants they can quickly slip over their clothes (much like they would snow pants)
- Bring an umbrella
- Wear a rain hat
- Bring a change of clothes just in case
