Students Parents Staff Community



The following changes have been implemented by the TJES School Board on November 14, 2017:

TJES Recess Policy

Outdoor recess is a part of each child’s day at TJES. When temperatures become such that scheduled outdoor play is not safe, recess will be shortened or held indoors.


The following guidelines have been established for safe and healthy outdoor play.




         At or Above 0 degrees (wind chill)

Regular Outside Recess

        Below  (wind chill)

Recess Indoors

(Parents not wanting their child to have outdoor play based on these guidelines must submit a signed and dated request each day that no outdoor time is being requested. Notes will be filed and collected by the office staff.)


If a student does not have proper cold weather clothing, this matter will be brought to the attention of the TJES social worker and resolved on an individual basis.
