Extreme Cold Weather

During the winter and on some of our coldest days, we make every effort to monitor the weather conditions that may impact the safety of staff and students. Below are many considerations that we take at Pine Grove P.S.

  1. Students are to come to school ready for winter and prepared to be outdoors for morning recess and after lunch. 
  2. When temperatures and/or wind chill reach minus 20 degrees Celsius, we consider an indoor routine for recess/events. 
  3. When temperatures and/or wind chill reach minus 18-19 degrees Celsius, consider a shortened outdoor routine for recess/events. 
  4. Children need to be dressed properly for our invigorating winter days. It is advisable for students to bring extra pants and socks. A change is often necessary due to the wet and cold weather of the winter months. To avoid adding to the clothing collection in the Lost and Found, parents/guardians should be advised to label all articles of clothing, including but not limited to, boots, hats, mitts/gloves, scarves, and snow pants. 
  5. Encourage physical activity, such as walking or playing, to increase metabolism – which generates more body heat. 
  6. Children should be monitored closely for signs of frostnip, frostbite or difficulty breathing.
  7. Students with health concerns, such as, but not limited to, heavy colds, coughs and flu, which are serious enough to prevent them from participating in physical education, recesses or other outdoor activities, should remain at home until the condition improves.

The Secret Life of Riley K. Performance for Grades 4-8 - *NEW DATE - FEB 28TH*

Pine Grove is excited to invite our Junior and Intermediate students to Education Arts Canada's brand new performance, The Secret Life of Riley K, right in our very own gymnasium on Wednesday, February 28th, 2018. "12 year-old Riley K, is a clever, ambitious girl who strives for a perfect life.  But the prospect of giving a big speech leads to a perfect mess!  She is surprised to learn that her sick stomach was not the flu, but anxiety.  Riley discovers she isn’t alone with these challenges and that help is nearby."

"This beautifully-produced, curriculum-integrated show, stimulates real discussion and learning amongst students.  The Secret Life of Riley K was created by Juno award-winning musical writers, Judy and David Gershon, and by Canadian director and playwright, Ali Joy Richardson, along with guidance from a team of mental health specialists.  It was all made possible with the assistance of the Ontario Trillium Foundation."
