WEATHER GUIDE

When we go outside and when we stay indoors

We watch the weather closely all year long, and we follow the guidelines below for canceling classes or moving them indoors.

CLASS IS CANCELED WHEN PUBLIC SCHOOLS:

  • Are cancelled for inclement weather

  • Close early due to weather conditions

DURING THE WEATHER EVENTS BELOW, CLASS WILL BE MOVED FULLY INDOORS, IF PANDEMIC CONDITIONS ALLOW:

  • NYC high wind advisory asking people not to enter city parks

  • Winds forecasted to be 40 MPH or more for the whole class period

  • Forecasted heavy rain and a wind chill of 40° or less for the majority of the class period

  • Forecasted wind chill of 15° or less with no precipitation

DURING THE WEATHER EVENTS BELOW, OUR OUTDOOR TIME WILL BE SHORTENED:

  • Thunder heard or lightning visible

  • Forecasted wind chill of 32° to 15°

  • Forecasted snow with winds of 30 MPH or more

  • Forecasted moderate rain and a wind chill of 40° or less for part of the class period

WHEN OUTDOOR TIME IS SHORTENED THIS COULD MEAN:

  • stopping by the library for extra reading time before going outside

  • sheltering inside or in our outdoor tent while a weather event passes

  • moving inside earlier than our normal pick-up time if a weather event occurs during class

  • possibly calling parents for an early pick-up, if pandemic conditions don't allow for indoor gatherings

PROTECTIONS FROM COLD, WIND AND RAIN THAT ARE A PART OF EVERY CLASS:

  • a pop-up shelter to protect from wind and cold

  • a tarp shelter to protect from warm rain

  • warm tea or cider to heat hands and insides

  • hand warmers

  • full cover rain suits

  • extra gloves and hats as needed

  • Parents supply boots, snow suits, waterproof gloves and other appropriate layers

INDOOR CLASSES INCLUDE:

  • Library Time (group and free reading, events at the Sunset Park Library, 43rd Street and 4th Avenue)

  • Brooklyn Wild Playdate (indoor free play at 428 45th Street)

  • Romping the halls of Industry City

  • Additional options coming soon!
