Whether it is extreme heat or poor air quality, our teachers and staff know what to do to keep students safe while learning at school.

School and district administrators base decisions on local conditions and recommendations from the National Weather Service’s Heat Risk Prototype and U.S. Air Quality Index -

In addition to being watchful for any health issues, our teachers and school staff may also:

  • Increase water breaks
  • Limit outdoor activities/strenuous activities
  • Follow a “rainy day” schedule, spending recess time in air conditioned rooms, playing board games, reading, watching a short film, or similar activities.
