Hello Quincy Families,
We have been researching the benefits of having recess before lunch for a couple years, and this year we are making the change. Woodbridge Elementary made this change last year with great success. The graphic below highlights some of the benefits.
Schools across the nation have been making this change over the past several years. The video below (out of Florida) may be helpful to watch with your child. Please assure them that this will be a helpful change because they will get to play first (for the same amount of time) and then not feel rushed while eating. Their teachers will pick them up in the cafeteria at the end of lunchtime. Young Fives is the only exception, for now they will have lunch then recess.
If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to ask them at Open House or email your child’s teacher. Thank you!
P.S. Please don’t forget to join us for our Facebook LIVE Bedtime Story on August 26!
