Hot weather has disrupted the schedules at some area schools this week. Howard and Colman-Egan Schools both released students a couple of hours earlier on Wednesday because of the forecasted high temperatures, with Colman-Egan’s administration also making the call to let out school early today (Thursday). Colman-Egan Superintendent Darold Rounds says there is air conditioning in their elementary building, but not in their high school.
Rounds says that it is better to get the students taken care of before the hottest part of the day.
Rounds says it is never an easy decision to make, but he has had to keep the students’ best interests and safety in mind.
Colman-Egan School District is not scheduled to have school on Friday, and Rounds says he is hoping the temperatures will cool off some for when students return on Tuesday.
