MADISON, Ala. (AP) - Officials with Madison City Schools are
stockpiling water in preparation for thousands of students
returning to class Monday.

The district will distribute roughly 1,500 bottled waters on all
of its bus routes Monday. It comes as temperatures are expected to
teeter near triple digits.

School transportation supervisor Bobby Jackson says authorities
worry that even on a 30-minute ride, a child can become dehydrated.

Huntsville Hospital and TOC Sports are donating the bottled
waters.

Madison school authorities say every student who wants a bottled
water will get one and they are prepared to get more water if
needed. They're also advising all students to hydrate themselves
before they head to the bus stop Monday.
