MANLY, Iowa – School is back and so is the hot weather
This heat wave has not surprised Pre K – 4th Grade Principal Bill Carlson; he told us he actually always expects the first few days to be a bit warmer.
"Well you know the weather, of course it's nice until the first day of school and then the humidity kicks up," Carlson said.
Some schools in the area are lucky enough to have air conditioning but others don't have that luxury.
At Central Springs Elementary, rooms with air conditioning are scarce throughout the building and teachers have to be even more aware of how the kids are dealing with the heat.
"We allow kids to have water bottles in the classroom," Carlson said. "We encourage water breaks, we try to make sure that kids know the importance of drinking water, and just staying hydrated."
While staying hydrated is very important during hot days, teachers at Central Springs can all recognize a tell-tale sign of when kids might be overheated, especially when they're outside.
"When they're out for recess, we watch their cheeks and do kind of the parent test...we call it...where if their cheeks are rosy we know it's time for them to sit down, cool down, come inside and get out of the heat," Carlson said.
Teachers always encourage water breaks during the day and they have kids bring water bottles to the classroom.
