Dear Families -
Due to the temperature of 87 degrees and a heat index of 90 degrees, the hot playground conditions and another active honey bee swarm, we will have indoor recess for the safety of our students and staff at JAC.
We are continuing to work with WPS Maintenance Department and a local beekeeper for the safe removal of the second honey bee swarm.

From the Westford School Days Handbook (Pg. 20)
OUTDOOR RECESS/ACTIVITIES - It is important to dress appropriately for outside activities/recess. Outdoor activities/recess is held whenever possible except if inclement weather or when the outside temperature exceeds 90°F or is below 20°F, which includes humidity and wind chill factors. Any child not well enough to be outdoors for recess during acceptable weather conditions should remain at home unless we have a communication from the child's physician recommending that he/she remain in the building. Playground boundaries are established for all play areas. In addition to staying within the assigned area, children must also stay within sight of the playground supervisor. The final decision as to outdoor recess/activities will be at the discretion of the building administrator.
