Staying safe during excessive heat is important!
The National Weather Service has extended its Excessive Heat Warning through September 9. During this time, SUSD takes extra precautions to keep your students in cool locations and provide extra water.
- School leadership staff at each site monitor heat information.
- PE classes are held indoors as much as possible and as needed.
- Students with medical conditions are monitored and allowed to rest more frequently as needed.
- Extra water is available at school sites.
- Athletic Directors follow all guidelines and sometimes that means closing practices early or canceling if needed.
We will keep you informed of any and all changes. Our goal is to keep students, teachers, and staff safe at all times.
