The school should stop forcing High School students to have mandatory outdoor recess. Currently, students who are not seniors are obligated to go out in the cold despite the Flu season. Although the importance of ventilation to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is highly valued, exposure to the cold is causing students to be even sicker as the temperature drops and students huddle together to maintain body temperature. This results in the violation of social distancing guidelines provided by the Korean government. Furthermore, many students inevitably break the school law when choosing to visit locations other than the courtyard where they know they'll get sick. To address these issues, the school should make outdoor recess optional and make alternative options such as classrooms or the auditorium for students to stay in.
