Heat Advisory - Safety of our Students
Every day i have been monitoring the rising temperatures here in the Hacienda area. Temperature and Humidity has been going over 100 degrees. Outside activity might be limited based on the temperature outside. The safety of our students is our number one priority.
I will continue to follow District Protocol.
If you have any questions please give me a call.
GUIDELINES FOR DAILY ACTIVITIES
Extreme heat events are characterized by stagnant, warm air masses and consecutive nights with high temperatures. An extreme heat event, or heat wave, is a prolonged period of excessively hot weather, which may be accompanied by high humidity. In times of extreme heat, a heat advisory will be sent from the district office in coordination with the Los Angeles County Office of Education. Otherwise the principal should monitor the heat index on days when heat will be an issue. The heat index is determined by temperature and relative humidity.
A. Heat index of 95+ degrees - No outside activities
B. Heat index of 90-94 degrees – Limited outside activities
1. Maintain clear focus on supervising students and looking for signs of over-heating
2. Mandatory water breaks every 30 minutes.
3. Mandatory breaks from activities after the water break for 5 to10 minutes in duration.
4. Monitor heat index every 30 minutes
5. Heat index of 89 degrees or below – standard protocol
