Don't Mess Around With The Heat

by Jessica Cervantez

With temperatures reaching 100 degrees, physical education coaches don't want to take any chances. They're keeping students inside. They are also making sure their kids are drinking plenty of fluids.

The young ones aren't the only ones you need to pay close attention to. The heat can cause many problems for the elderly.

While some jobs require it, doctors say that you should not stay out in the sun during the heat of the day if you can avoid doing so. This is especially important advice for kids, who sometimes don't know when they need a break.

It won't be long before September is here, but it doesn't look like the temperatures will be falling anytime soon.
