Did you know that on April 4, 2018, Senate Bill 1083, the Recess Law, was signed into law?
The law requires all schools that have grades K-5 to provide two recess periods per school day. Per the law, recess is defined as “a period of time during the regular school day, including time before or after a scheduled lunch period, during which a pupil is able to engage in physical activity or social interaction with other pupils”.
