Alvord Unified School District-Villages Middle School Complaint - Riverside, California
RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA -- Just to make any and all parents aware:
(I wrote the school district. They responded, school district PHONE'S the schools on the HOT days and give notice for the children not to go on the black top, mind you that is a LIE! I was there.)
Dear Alvord USD,
I'm writing as more then a concerned parent. Due to the constant start date change we are bringing our children to school in hotter conditions. Due to these changes, other policy MUST change as well.
I'm requesting the Athletic/ PE department changes the policy about our children daily activities on the black top.
A black top surface absorbs the sun, making the black top hotter then the actual temperature, I do not believe this is an appropriate temperature for my child to do push ups!!!!! For that matter, sit on or stand for any long period of time. This is cruel and unthought of, who would think a school would change start dates without considering changing other policy to accommodate there changes and weather conditions?
Our children were out on Friday and it was 100 degrees!
