I love that kids get recess here. I love that they go outside and play as long as it is above 20f. Snowpants and boots are required, but that’s ok.
Back in Brooklyn, once it was a bit below freezing, or if there was snow, kids stayed inside. They’d watch a movie, or huddle in the gym.
Better for the health of the children, and the sanity of the adults, to have kids run off some energy and get some fresh air. A lot can be said for the simple act of having recess. More schools should do this. And schools like this are one of the reasons I can’t see ever returning to NYC. My children.
