The Fairmount Co-op follows the Cleveland Heights-University Heights School District for weather
related school closures.

Children will not be taken outside when the temperature (wind chill and heat index factored in) drops below 25 degrees or above 90 degrees at the time of their scheduled outdoor activity period. For your child’s sake, send
appropriate outdoor clothing!

​If outdoor play is not possible, we will play in the Muscle Room instead.​​
