Superintendent's Message Regarding High Heat
Hello North Syracuse Central School District families!
I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and send a quick message as we begin our first summer scorcher weekend. You may have noticed that the district has cancelled all outdoor activities for the weekend. Extremely hot and humid weather is being predicted throughout the weekend and we are advising our families to take precautions to prevent heat-related illness.
As a Central New York resident for many years, I understand wanting to enjoy every second of summer since we do seem to have to wait a long time for the sunshine. I encourage you however, to make sure to enjoy the weather safely by staying cool and hydrated.
The district houses summer programs at some of our school buildings, many run through outside agencies. As you are getting your children ready for these programs, please be sure to take the high heat into consideration. Light, loose clothing is best in hot temperatures and it is incredibly important to stay well hydrated.
Some of our school buildings have air conditioning available so with programs taking place on days like today, we will be sure to have it turned on. In buildings where air conditioning is not available, please be assured that district and/or town recreation department staff are keeping your children safe and comfortable.
You’ll be hearing more from me in the near future but in the meantime, have a safe and healthy weekend and enjoy the sunshine in moderation!
Daniel D. Bowles, Superintendent of Schools
