Excessive Heat Warning in Effect July 6-10

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning from noon this Saturday, July 6th until 10:00 pm on Tuesday, July 10th. During this time, temperatures are expected to reach well above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, with very little relief overnight. These conditions can be dangerous, especially for children and older adults. 

School Impacts:

Summer School and Summer Programs will run normally. We will adjust to allow outdoor activity during the relative coolness of the morning hours. Parents, please ensure your children are well-hydrated, appropriately dressed, and have applied sunscreen. If your student walks home from school please consider picking them up and communicate your plans with the school. For more information please see the Summer School Extreme Heat Parent Information Guide.

Heat Safety Tips:

  • Stay hydrated: Encourage children to drink plenty of water throughout the day, even if they don't feel thirsty. 
  • Limit strenuous activity: Avoid outdoor activities during the hottest part of the day (typically between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm). 
  • Dress for the weather: Wear loose-fitting, lightweight clothing made from breathable fabrics.
  • Seek shade and air conditioning: Spend time in air-conditioned spaces whenever possible.
  • Be aware of the signs of heatstroke: Headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, confusion, and fainting. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately.
