Parent questions school’s recess policy

A Lincoln elementary mom says kids in Iola don’t get enough recess during the school day.

The 15 minutes of a 436-minute day dedicated to outdoor, physical activity isn’t enough for most of the 645 kids flooding the classrooms of USD 257’s three elementary schools, Amanda Pollock said at a recent school board meeting.

“One recess is absolutely not enough,” she said. “He cannot sit through a class for seven hours. He can barely sit at home for an hour.”
