Heat Advisory

Based on local weather forecasts, this week could be the hottest week of the year.  With that in mind, we are urging schools to exercise EXTREME CAUTION in any activities scheduled during this period when temperatures are expected to reach the upper 90’s and heat index values forecast to be well over 100.  A number of things should be considered when scheduling workouts, including time of day, intensity level of workouts, equipment worn and environmental conditions.

  • Schools are reminded to be aware of and observe local policies relative to humidity and extreme heat.  
  • Additional detailed hot weather guidelines, including charts for temperature and relative humidity and potential workout adjustments can be found on the Health and Safety page.
