Alert message

The Texas summer can be dangerously hot and therefore presents a dangerous health hazard for students. Minimize sun exposure by avoiding unprotected, extended time outdoors. Provide multiple forms of protection, including reduced time exposure, wearing hats and sunglasses, drinking a lot of water, and wearing heavy sunscreen and reapplying it regularly.
