SAN DIEGO - Excessive heat this week has prompted city school officials to take action and release some students early.
San Diego Unified School District released a list of affected schools that are on a "Minimum Day" schedule Tuesday.
On Monday, the first day of school, teachers were already dealing with record-high temperatures.
"I spent the morning talking to principals. They’ve gone into the classrooms asking the teachers what’s the temperature like, how’s learning going to be, giving them the weather forecast for tomorrow. We're making school by school, cluster by cluster decisions," San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten said. "Teachers are letting us know by sending pictures of thermometer in the classroom. At the end of the day, we want to ensure students are able to learn."
SDUSD decided not shorten the school day on Wednesday, officials said.
The schools with Minimum Day Tuesday are as follows:
Bay Park Elementary
Clairemont High School
Crown Point Elementary
Grant K-8 (REMOVED as of 4:29 on 8/28 - regular schedule)
