cold school recesses

  • Does anyone have problems w/recesses in their kindergarten in cold weather. This is my 1st child in school and they let the kids go out for recesses (2/ 15 min. ones and one 1/2 hr. one) when the weather is above 0 degrees. My child had a little cough (no fever) but could not stay in for recess, they say if they are well enough to be in school they have to go out for recess. The schools don't want your kid to miss school but what do you do? I'm tempted to keep her home now everytime she has a sniffle since it's just kindergarten? What do you all do in winter weather? She has been sick "all" Christmas vacation so far.
