“The continued excessive heat over the weekend kept the schools warmer than normal,” Superintendent Brad Silvus said. “Since we have not had a break in the temperatures over the weekend, we felt it was important to release early today. We are hopeful that by mid-week, the weather will break and temperatures will return to normal levels.”
