Heat Closing Philly Public Schools Early

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Philadelphia school kids will get a short day in class Monday, thanks to the heat.

Classes will let out at noon because school administrators are worried it will get too hot inside the classrooms.

Many of the school buildings in the city do not have air conditioning so administrators will let students go home before it gets too hot.

At the 12 p.m. dismissal time, routine transportation will occur for students. All after-school and programs will be canceled. Staff will remain in the building until all students have left or have been picked up.

The general public and media are urged to monitor the district's website at www.philasd.org for any updates. Updated information will also be posted on the district's information hotline at 215-400-INFO (4636).
