Heat Alert Day & Fun Run 

For Grades K-5 - please plan on going to an air-conditioned space to "chill out" for 20-30 minutes after their FUN RUN session so they have a complete cool down. If you do not have AC in your room, please seek to use a colleagues space while they are at the FUN RUN. Beaven Hall may also be available. If you are not sure where to go, please let RG know. The library may also be available. 

For ES and K teachers without AC - Heidenreich Hall is available until 10:30 (two classrooms can fit here. The CHAPEL is available for religion class or silent reading...but I'd prefer no other activities happen there. I would also look to your colleagues with AC'd rooms to see if you can use their space for the 30-40 minutes to have a little bit of cool time while the kids are away at CHAMPS. If there is nothing else available, I can have a class squeeze into my office and I'll go elsewhere (just give me a buzz or a text). Please let Carol Dodovich know where you are if you leave. 

RECESS - since we have the FUN RUN today, please have recess inside your room, or find a shady part of the sidewalk and have some "chill time outside." 

Water - have more frequent water breaks
