Friday will be the second day this week -- the first week of the new school year -- that many of the schools will be on a shorter schedule due to the high temperatures.


The district has put 2,000 A/C units into its hottest classrooms, and the plan is to be at 100% by summer 2019.

District officials said when temperatures reach 95 degrees or more, campuses with less than 80 percent of their classrooms air-conditioned are moved to a Minimum Day schedule. A decision to shorten schedules is made by 12 p.m. the previous day to help parents with any child care or pickup arrangements.

As the hot weather persists, students are reminded to wear light, loose-fitting clothing and to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
