Outdoor Safety


Heat Precautions: Historically, hot summer temperatures continue through the beginning of the school year. Younger students are at risk of excessive heat because of the increased body surface area. The heat index becomes an important factor with the outdoor activities. Each campus takes into consideration the local heat factors--temperature, humidity, and sunshine--and modify plus monitor all outdoor activities accordingly. Opportunities to drink plenty of fluids will be provided and students will be encouraged to drink fluids during the evening hours at home.


The staff of each campus is aware of the following signs and symptoms of heat stress.


Extreme sweating or lack of sweating
Paleness
Muscle cramps
Fatigue and weakness
Dizziness
Headache
Nausea and vomiting
Rapid pulse rate
Shallow fast breathing
Fainting

Students will be taken to the school nurse if symptoms of heat stress are suspected. Dehydration is the most common cause of heat stress and exhibit cumulative effects. If symptoms of heat stress become severe and persistent it is important to seek medical care immediately.


Inclement weather is carefully monitored. Students will remain indoors if there are signs of thunderstorms and/or lightning.
