Carman-Ainsworth Community Schools

Working Together to Guarantee Learning for Every Student

As per the Student Handbook, elementary children must be dressed appropriately for the weather, as they will be expected to go outside when the wind chill or temperature is above "zero" degrees Fahrenheit and when it is not raining in other seasons. (When wind chill is 10 degrees or lower, the building will determine if conditions are appropriate for outside recess.) Please see that you child comes dressed for the many drastic changes we can see in our Michigan weather. Students are expected to go outside unless a note is sent from a parent. Indoor recess beyond two days will require a doctor's statement.

In the event that school would be called off due to weather or any other extenuating circumstances, the following sources will make the announcement to the public:  TV stations WJRT (12) and WEYI (25).
