With temperatures forecast to reach close to 100 degrees on Tuesday, PPS says it is considering closing schools two hours early- before the heat reaches its highest levels.

The district will monitor the forecast just as it monitors snow forecasts in the winter.

Only seven of PPS’ schools have air conditioning, according to KPTV, and Lincoln is not one of them. This could make the heat in school buildings unbearable as temperatures reach their peak around the time school usually lets out. The final plan will be announced by PPS on Monday.
