    Schools letting out early because of heat

    Too bad it isn't Friday. Kids would get a really long weekend.

    Seems strange, it was much hotter than this several days this summer. Although maybe they released early then too, looks like it's mostly smaller schools.

    Some of those older schools with poor ventilation and no A/C can be pretty brutal when it gets hot out. They were never meant for use in the summer. Still seems a bit silly though, but I haven't been outside since 6AM today.

    Yeah I guess those days probably happened later than I'm remembering.

    That's kind of what I figured.

    Re: Schools letting out early because of heat

    The HS for the district I teach in had temps of 94 in the classroom during the day yesterday...takes days for them to air out with terrible ventilation. They are letting out early today and tomorrow for it at the HS but not the other buildings (I'm at the MS so no early out here )



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Re: Schools letting out early because of heat

    I invite any of you to come sit in a class room with 25 kids today or tomorrow. You will then understand why schools are releasing early. It is brutal in those rooms. Hopefully this is the end of the heat. Bring on Fall.

    Re: Schools letting out early because of heat

    Common in schools with no A/C. Cost to retrofit older buildings is way over what makes sense for a couple/few hot days early (and sometimes late) in the school year. This has happened almost every August that I can remember, somewhere in the state.

    I think this is stupid when they let out some of the schools and not others. I think it should be an all or nothing approach.

    I remember back in college when I used to roof houses in this heat. Thought I was going to die a couple of those days!

    Re: Schools letting out early because of heat

    You know that scene in GI Jane when they have to write a paper and they crank up the heat to see who will fall asleep? It is super hard to concentrate on learning when all you can think of is how hot it is. I remember being in elementary and not paying attention at all. At that point, it does nobody any good to stay in session- and the schools can get credit for a half day or even a full day, depending how late they stay.

    Our HS had air conditioning in Underwood, so that was the best- we got out let early because the elementary still didnt have it, but we could wear long sleeves if we wanted.
