School districts well prepared for last few days of hot weather

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Summer may be over for kids but the summer weather is sticking around for a couple more days.

School districts around the metro area told FOX 12 they usually see a few hot days a year, so they are well prepared.

Parents are still taking extra precaution though.

"Packed him plenty of cold water, more than normal for sure," said Mary Delacruz.

It may seem like common sense, but it's worth a reminder: be careful of playground equipment at local parks.

The metal and plastic can heat up, sometimes up to more than 150 degrees.

It may be a good idea to limit outdoor time during the hottest time of the day, and of course, it's always a good idea to drink plenty of water.
