The health and safety of children, families and staff is a priority. To provide the proper conditions for everyone, the building heating system will be monitored, adjusted and used appropriately.
All heaters and registers have a method by which the heat can be regulated. It is the responsibility of Head Start staff to ensure that the temperatures of the classrooms and radiator covers are appropriate and safe in accordance with the following guidelines:
- Classroom temperature should be maintained at 70º during the winter.
- The radiator guard surface accessible to children and staff should never exceed 110º
Site staff will follow this procedure to assure adequate heating for children.
This policy complies with Head Start Performance Standard CFR 1304.22(d)
