Preparing for Friday’s Dangerous Temperatures

Preparing for Friday’s Dangerous Temperatures
Posted on 02/01/2023

As we prepare for extremely cold temperatures this Friday, February 3, we ask that you please dress your child warmly and in layers for school. Temperatures are expected to fall into the single digits with wind chills below zero.


In preparation for the cold:

  • The heat in all CPS school buildings will stay running through tomorrow night into Friday morning so that they are warm when students and staff arrive.

  • Principals will make a determination on whether recess will be held outdoors. 


If your child is in immediate need of a coat, gloves, hat, or shoes, please contact the school’s Family Liaison. The Spot Cambridge also provides free clothing and other items. You can order online here.


The City of Cambridge has a winter warming center at the Cambridge Senior Center, located at 806 Massachusetts Avenue. We will share information about additional warming centers as it becomes available.


Please be safe and stay warm!
