BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport's schools will all have early dismissal today due to the expected heat.

The early dismissal applies to the Bridgeport public schools and all six Catholic schools.

The decision was made since many of the schools do not have air conditioning creating stifling conditions in the classrooms.

The high schools will let out at 12:27 p.m., middle schools get out at 12:45 p.m. and elementary students will be sent home at 1:20 p.m.
