Change the school year calendar

Our kids are in classrooms that are 95 - 105 degrees, and leaving school sweaty, red faced, and feeling ill.  

Already this year-less than a month in session-a child has been rushed to the hospital due to heat.  By Law, children cannot be left alone in cars and are banned from hot-tubs.  There is a reason why, they do not have fully developed thermostats in their little bodies therefore they don't know when hot is too hot!

Yet, everyday we are sending our children to schools without air conditioning or proper ventilation because DPS is saying it is ok!

Changing the summer break from mid June through after Labor Day will shorten the amount of days they are in school in the heat. This needs to be changed for the Health and Safety of our kids!

Please make our children's health and safety a priority before anything else!
