 Hudson I.S.D. Temperature Guidelines

Physical Education -  Extra Curricular Activities – Athletics

The extreme heat, cold in our region is a concern to the health and safety of our students. Heat and cold injuries cannot always be prevented, but with the education of coaches, sponsors, and instructors, and controlled practice procedures, heat and cold related illnesses could be minimized. The following temperature guidelines have been established in order provide a safe and healthy environment for students participating in outdoor activities at Hudson I.S.D. The listed temperatures, heat indexes, and wind-chill factors are designated figures for terminating outdoor activities. Exposure duration and frequency of breaks should be modified as the temperatures approach the listed recommendations. The Hudson I.S.D. Athletic Director or his designee will notify staff and other administrators of current and projected weather conditions when necessary. It is the responsibility of each coach/sponsor/instructor to ensure these guidelines are being followed.
