Middletown Public Schools
Middletown Recess Initiative for Students, Parents, and Staff
Because of COVID-19, we have extra elements to think about when designing a safe and fair recess. We need to keep our students grouped. (This helps us accurately contact trace when needed.) We want to ensure equal access to the playscape, blacktop, and recess equipment without having our cohorts/groups mix. We want to ensure that all elementary students are having similar recess experiences in all of our schools. (Just like our kids, we want to make sure things are fair.)
So, how do we create a recess that ensures students’ health safety, equal access to recess materials, and similar experiences in all schools?
