Somers Schools Confront Heat Wave

Temperatures may reach as high as 96 degrees and feel closer to 99 Thursday, according to . However, the Somers school system has plans in place to keep students safe and comfortable.

“We get our weather alerts and we’re going to use normal common sense,” said Scott Persampieri, director of personnel and instructional services for the district. “We’re making water available and making sure the kids are hydrated. And we’ll keep an eye out for medical conditions.”

An air conditioned auditorium will be made available for children who normally play outside during recess. Many classrooms have window air conditioning units.

“Where the classrooms become unbearable we’ll look at other available spots,” Persampieri said. “If necessary, we’re prepared to move classes to libraries, auditoriums or computer rooms, which are air-conditioned.”

The most important thing, he stressed, “is that everyone should remain hydrated.”
