GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Cold, bottled water will be waiting for students in the Graves County Schools for their bus ride home during the current period of excessive heat.
Superintendent Kim Harrison and transportation director Jason Riley communicate regularly about the temperature and heat index each day as well as projections for later in the afternoons during especially hot weather. Meteorologists are forecasting high temperatures and excessive heat from mid- to late-afternoon this week.
“Hydration is important for everybody in conditions like these and, of course, we want to make sure our students have water after a long day of school for the ride home,” Harrison said. “Mr. Riley and his staff always do a great job of keeping an eye on the weather and responding appropriately.”
