Hi everyone! I have two boys, one in pre school and one in third grade both at public schools. There has been construction going on at my oldest son's grade school ever since the beginning of the school year, which has caused the entire school full of children to NOT HAVE RECESS at all!!
My question is this....Is there some kind of law or just "rule" in general about giving the children recess? I seem to think that because they are children, that BREAK they recieve during the day of recess is NEEDED, it's NOT a "reward." I know it's late in the school year, but spring is coming up soon and I believe that the children would BENEFIT from at least getting outside for a walk around the block each day!! I was hoping that someone might be able to steer me in a direction with this.
The school grounds are tore up, but the school is in a suburban subdivision community with plenty of walking space. Thank you !!!
