Virginia Elementary School Teacher Holds Class Outdoors in Sub-Freezing Weather

A teacher at an elementary school in the D.C. suburb of Northern Virginia was seen on video holding class outdoors in sub-freezing weather Tuesday according to a post by a parents group. COVID fears have led schools around the country to make children take classes or eat lunch outdoors in cold weather.

A photo and video each show a teacher reading to students bundled up against the 24-degree cold who were sitting on the sidewalk between piles of snow in front of Waynewood Elementary, located a few miles south of Alexandria in the Fort Hunt area of Fairfax County.

The Fairfax County Parents Association, which describes itself as a “Nonpartisan group representing thousands of Fairfax County parents prioritizing children over politics in public education,” posted:

“It’s well below freezing in Fairfax County, yet young children are having story time on the cold concrete outside at @waynewoodes. This is the result of poor leadership and confusing guidance to teachers. Get these little ones inside! @FCPSSupt @fcpsnews @fairfaxhealth…Video of the elementary school kids sitting in 24 degrees (that’s Fahrenheit, below freezing) at @waynewoodes today. This is Virginia, where kids don’t routinely wear down and wool. @Karen4Schools @FCPSSupt @fcpsnews”

The video shows the teacher has most of the kids sitting in the shade as she stands in front of them holding a book.

There does not appear to be any comment yet by school officials.

A local weather chart shows the temperatures for Tuesday in the area styed in the mid-20s for most of the day.
