If Your School Closed For the Day -- Because of the Heat

September 8, 2016 12:46am CST
Working in the heat is one thing; teaching and studying in the (recent) heat, another... Did your school close for the day, because of the recent heat, and... what has your experience been, when trying to attend your classes or teach, in the recent heat?

Before they put inn air conditioning in the schools we ended up with a lot of days that let out at 1 pm so the children weren't sitting in the heat of the afternoon.

@marsha32 I never heard of getting off for heat and I never had air conditioning in it nor my kids many years later.

In Germany schools are closed at 10 o'clock if it's too hot.

I wish I had gone to school there. We never got off for anything except for snow and it wasn't because of the schools it was because of the danger on the roads for the school buses.

Some of the local schools did in fact close last week due to a very poorly ventilated air conditioning system which makes me boiling mad that schools are NOT getting the funds they do need to keep kids in school !
