Extreme heat prompts second day of early dismissals for several schools

Posted: Updated:
STAMFORD -

Stamford Public Schools dismissed early today with temperatures soaring into the 90s again.

The district followed the lead of Norwalk Public Schools Monday, which let out 11 schools early.

According to the district, those 11 schools were let out early because they did not have air conditioning, a decision that drew in a lot of mixed reaction.

Many people say students should not have been dismissed early, while most parents outside the school say it was the right choice.

While the Stamford Public Schools district says most schools have only partial air-conditioning, there is just not much relief for the students.

According to teachers, Springdale School in Stamford is in the process of installing AC units in classrooms that still need them.

All Stamford Public Schools after school programs are canceled, and high school final exams will go on as scheduled.

Stratford Public Schools dismissed early as well.
