RAINY DAY SUPERVISION POLICY
Phil & Jennie Gaglardi Academy
ON “RAINY DAYS” ALL K-7 STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO:
Rainy Day monitors are chosen by teachers from Grade 8 or 9, Grade 7, or Grade 6. The
nominated students should be responsible individuals who will help monitor and facilitate play
with kids in class. Rainy Day monitors are given a meeting beforehand to review roles and
expectations of being a monitor. They are encouraged to take their job seriously. They are
seen as role models and being a monitor is a very important job. (I am happy to facilitate a
meeting and to help organise). They are always assigned the same class. If it is deemed a
rainy day, a call usually made by the principal/office then students will know that they are to
go to their designated classroom. Teachers leave suitable games, activities for kids to do. No
other outside children are allowed in room. Parent supervisors and teacher supervisors
(whoever is on duty) continue to monitor the halls and classrooms. Children are to stay in
their own classroom with the exception of rainy day monitors.
Classrooms should have a Rainy Day activity corner with games, puzzles, centres ready to
go. The area is clearly marked and students know where to access materials.
Teachers are then able to go and eat their lunch.
The scheduled "outdoor supervisors" (parents or teachers) are responsible for monitoring the
hallways and washrooms.
