School District Winter Weather Policy


As you know, winter weather has already arrived here in Minnesota.  Please remember that the White Bear Lake Area School District uses a -10 degree wind chill rule in determining in/out days for recess.   If the weather is -10 degrees or warmer, the students will be going outside for recess. Students should come to school each day prepared to head outside for fresh air, fun and exercise.
