Condition Green – Children may play outdoors, wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions (no coats, sweatshirts), and remind students to take water breaks.

 

Condition Yellow – observe children for signs of being too hot (sweating profusely, confused), shorten length of time outdoors if any, stay in the shade as much as possible and give them lots of water breaks. If possible, students should remain in the coolest part of the building with air conditioning or with some kind of air movement/ventilation.

 

Condition Red – most children should not play outdoors due to health risk. Older children may play outside for very short periods if properly dressed and drink plenty of fluids. Students should remain in the coolest part of the building with air conditioning or with some kind of air movement/ventilation.
