Classes are wrapping up for Staunton Public Schools, but many students weren't expecting temperatures in the upper 90s to greet them for their last week of school.

School leaders say they are doing as much as they can to keep students cool and out of the heat.

On Tuesday morning, Superintendent Dr. Steven Nichols sent a note to all school employees warning about the heat and asking them to be vigilant.

Nichols says, "Decisions about recess and outside activities are school based, meaning that each administrator there keeps that in mind and keeps and eye on the kids, and if it's too warm, they stay out just a short period of time."

Since it is the last week of classes in Staunton, many schools are having field days this week, and they are now taking extra precautions due to the heat.
