Tips for Staying Safe During Extreme Heat

With unusually warm weather continuing across San Diego County, the National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning through Wednesday evening. 

Temperatures are expected to climb to 100 degrees in San Diego County valleys and coastal areas, which significantly increases the potential for heat-related illnesses. 

Tips to Avoid Heat-Related Illnesses

  • Stay in an air-conditioned area during the hottest hours of the day
    • Keep students and staff indoors during the afternoon hours 
  • Wear light, loose-fitting clothing
    • Notify students and families to avoid heavy jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, and other heavy clothing  
  • Drink plenty of water and avoid sugary drinks; don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink
    • Encourage staff, students, and faculty to bring water to school and/or work and make sure your site has plenty of water on hand to distribute
  • Avoid unnecessary hard work or activities outside during the hottest part of the day
  • Avoid outdoor student physical activity in the afternoon hours
  • Avoid unnecessary sun exposure and wear a wide-brim hat if you or your staff need to be in the sun
