257 board puts recess issue to rest



April 24, 2012 - 12:00 AM

USD 257 has no district-wide policy regulating recesses in elementary schools, and doesn’t need one, board member concluded Monday night.

Amanda Pollock, a Lincoln Elementary mom, questioned whether district elementaries had enough recess time, a topic fleshed out in an April 12 Register story. She said a morning recess, along with a lunch break and physical education class every other day weren’t enough.

Principals from the three schools — Lincoln, Jefferson and McKinley — said time away from the classroom totaled more than Pollock mentioned and the Register reported.
