MISSOULA, Mont. — Temperatures Friday morning will be in the single digits and below zero once again.
Bus stops will be chilly, but recess will be cold as well. According to Missoula school websites, protocol is to have outdoor recess until temperatures or wind chill reaches 0 degrees Fahrenheit. They say to always dress your children assuming recess will be outdoors.
With temperatures in the 20s and calm winds, it’s possible to start seeing signs of frostbite after being outdoors for just half an hour. Protecting extremities is most important.
Be sure to send kids to school in multiple layers, hats, gloves and warm socks and boots.
