I was in several schools today, and the temps were consistently in the low 90s on each school’s second floor. I spoke with Russ Murley at Precision Weather Service. He predicts hotter weather and slightly higher humidity index tomorrow, so classrooms will feel like mid 90s. Those upper floor classrooms will not cool off tonight either. For this reason, I have decided to make tomorrow an early release day.
I spoke with York County Superintendents Group, but do not think others are following suit. I do not wish to create hardships on families, but I think it is the right thing to do. Mr. Marelli will decide on sporting events and Adult Education has AC, so it will continue as planned. As a reminder grades K-5 will be dismissed at 12pm and grades 6-12 at 11am.
