Staying Cool for the Summer
Summer is right around the corner! With the temperatures rapidly increasing, please remember to keep children protected from extreme heat. Playing outdoors is important and beneficial for children and should be done if weather conditions do not pose a safety hazard or individual health risk.
According to the National Weather Service, a heat index at or above 90 degrees or higher may pose a significant health risk, however there are many ways to beat the heat and protect your child from heat-related illnesses, such as staying hydrated and dressing lightly.
