Due to the heat advisory in the forecast for today, HCS will be operating under our heightened awareness weather protocols.  The Heightened Awareness protocols will remain in effect throughout the duration of the heat advisory. Our schools will take extra precautions to ensure the safety of our students by limiting outdoor activities and keeping students hydrated.  Our middle and high schools will be utilizing the Alabama High School Athletic Association guidelines for outdoor heat for all our students involved in any extracurricular activities, such as sports, band, etc.
