Heat Guidelines

Weather in the city of Escondido can be warm throughout the school year.  Per CA State Law AB 1653 and CIF Bylaw 503.k.1, San Pasqual High School uses a Wet Bulb Globe Thermometer (WBGT) on site to measure the outdoor conditions. The WBGT is the standard for determining safe practices in heat throughout collegiate and professional athletics, and is now the standard for CIF high schools.  When conditions dictate, the San Pasqual Athletic Trainer will use the WBGT and consult the guidelines chart (posted below) to determine what, if any, precautions need to be taken.  All coaches in the EUHSD are trained in CPR/1st Aid, response to heat illness, signs of sudden cardiac arrest and concussion awareness. Once a determination has been made that practices and/or competitions must be modified or canceled, coaches are notified by the Athletic Trainer, Athletic Director or SPHS Administration.
