Morning recess has started at KES and we are loving it! We have NOT replaced afternoon recess but ADDED morning recess for our students. The reason we decided to start morning recess was all based on wellness for our students that is based on research. After a long bus ride or a sluggish start to the day fresh air and exercise it exactly what is needed to start the day. Recess is proven to increase focus, natural light improves overall wellness, recess reduces stress, helps develop social skills, physical activity feeds the brain, and it is just overall healthy for students.
MORNING RECESS PROCEDURES:
7:50 Students who eat breakfast are sent to breakfast. IT IS IMPORTANT TO EAT BREAKFAST and not skip it. If the student goes straight to breakfast in the morning they have plenty of time to enjoy Morning recess too. Please help remind you child of this.
8:00 Students are to go straight to the playground for recess after being dropped off or after getting off the bus.
8:00-8:15 Most all staff and students are outside.
8:15 Students return to class to start their day!
