PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - School is back in session across Region 8 and the summer heat has moved in just in time for it.
With most of the area under a heat advisory today, how are some of the schools keeping the kids safe in the high temperature?
Principal Vonnie Greer at Greene County Tech Elementary said that the students have been kept inside because of the high temperatures, but that doesn't mean the students aren't getting to be active.
Greer said that the students have only had the opportunity to play outside once since the school year started last Tuesday and since then it has just been too hot.
PE teacher at Greene County Tech Gia Taylor said they are able to use their gym for recess, which is large enough to house the students and includes air conditioning.
