Extreme Hot Weather
Calvin Christian School has a “hot weather” plan in place for periods of extremely hot weather.
It is the policy of the Elementary, Junior High and High School to implement modified activities/instruction when temperatures reach 95 degrees fahrenheit or reach a heat index of 100 degrees. This policy is similar, if not the same as many school districts in San Diego county.
It is the policy of the Elementary, Junior High and High School to implement modified activities/instruction when temperatures reach 95 degrees fahrenheit or reach a heat index of 100 degrees.
Modified activities include, but are not limited to:
- Lunch in the shade for students in kindergarten through 12th
- Recess indoor for students in grades kindergarten through 5th
- Limited physical activity during breaks and P.E. classes
Modifications to our instructional plan, as well as after school sports, are made to take advantage of cooler spots around campus and to minimize discomfort for our students as much as possible. PE activities will also be adjusted to reduce strenuous activity. We encourage students to bring a bottle of water to school or take breaks to the drinking fountains in order to stay hydrated. For our preschool students, teachers are instructed to stay indoors with their students on hot days.
We also strongly recommend that parents apply a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to all exposed skin. Consider sending your student to school with protective clothing such as a hat and sunglasses when possible.
Please note that Calvin Christian School will not close due to extreme hot weather as all of our classrooms have air conditioning.
