Wind Chill / Outdoor Activities

Hanover School Division will hold indoor recess when the wind chill factor reaches or exceeds -30 Celsius. Readings will be obtained from Environment Canada at  www.weatheroffice.ec.gc.ca . Many of our students are coming to school without jackets, toques and/or mitts. Please ensure your child comes to school appropriately dressed for the weather.
