St. Joseph Hot Weather Plan


Heat Stress is the overloading of the body's cooling system.  Working or playing when it is hot puts stress on your body's cooling system.  When heat is combined with other stresses, such as hard physical work, loss of fluids, fatigue or some medical conditions it may lead to heat related illness.

Students are encouraged to wear light coloured clothing, hats, sunglasses and sunscreen. 

St. Joseph with monitor the weather through Environment Canada and will follow the Heat Warning guidelines as issued by the Region of Peel's Medical Officer of Heath. As per Board guidelines, hot weather procedures will be reviewed with staff and our Hot Weather Plan will be implemented.

St. Joseph's Hot Weather Plan includes:

  • Ensure staff members are aware of the Hot Weather Plan

  • Monitor the local weather and humidex

  • Ensure that all staff monitor students for signs of heat stress

  • Encourage the extra drinking of water and water breaks throughout the day, including during recess and outdoor play

  • Limit or reschedule activities taking place in the gym as it is not air conditioned

  • Modify or implement indoor recesses as per board guidelines to allow students to stay inside the air conditioned building



  • Drink lots of plain cool water before you feel thirsty

  • Stay cool and if possible, stay in an air-conditioned place

  • Wear a wide brimmed hat, UV protective sunglasses, and loose-fitting long shirts and pants.

  • Stay in the shade whenever possible

  • Reschedule or plan outdoor activities for cooler parts of the day

  • Call or visit family, friends and neighbours, especially isolated adults and seniors who are at greater risk of suffering from heat-related illness

  • If you feel faint, have difficulty breathing or feel confused and disoriented because of the heat, call your doctor. In an emergency, call 911.
