High Temperatures Unsafe for Young Children, Vulnerable Adults and Animals

With excessive temperatures and humidity in effect, County officials are urging residents to take precautions to protect themselves, and their pets, against heat-related illnesses such as heat stroke and heat exhaustion. Residents are also asked to check on elderly friends, relatives and neighbors who may be isolated to be sure they are not showing signs of heat-related illnesses. County facilities, including libraries, swimming pools, recreation and senior centers, as well as regional services centers, will be open and may provide respite from the heat.

The Montgomery County Police Animal Services Division also wants to remind community members to be especially careful with all pets during times of increased heat. Animals that are outdoors must have access to shade, shelter, and plenty of fresh water. For general information about County programs and services, call 3-1-1. Sign up for the County’s Alert Montgomery notification system at to receive emergency alerts regarding weather and other emergency information.

Addressing Food Security in Your Afterschool and Summer Learning Program

Food is the one afterschool and summer learning program component necessary for survival. Food security is something we deal with daily.
Students or staff might ask themselves on any given day:
  1.  Did I eat?
  2.  Did I have enough to eat?
  3.  What would I like to eat?
Increasingly, students rely on school cafeteria food for food security. Many in our programs eat breakfast, lunch and a snack or meal during our care; many have nothing to eat when they go home. We have opportunities to play a vital role in the food security of the students we serve.

This article, originally appeared in the Spring 2017 issue of AfterSchool Today magazine, offers insight and ways to adapt your role in students’ food security to help them achieve the goals and vision your program has identified to help address community needs.
