Shut up you cranky old bat.
It was 97 in my kids class. She is 6 and her face was beat red.It was not 2 more hours of school it was almost 4 hours for the elementary. So maybe they are not as tough as you. Maybe the heat won't fry their brain like it has yours.
It is not a joke . Extreme heat can be dangerous.What is it going to take for you to understand? A fatality?

I agree, my husband has to work outside in the sun in this - think they would like it if he said it was too hot and he wanted to go home early?
Seriously, they are inside, how bad can it be?

My district is one of those that dismissed the students, and just the students, early today. No, the kids are not sissies. There is just a heat index of 100 degrees INSIDE where very little air circulates... an open invitation for heat exhaustion. Many of our children already have compromised health, so better safe than sorry. And really, who cares NOW about how you roasted 35 years ago?? Probably still no one!!!

The ethnic majority of Allentown hails from a tropical region. They should be well adapted to the warm weather. You goofballs believe in evolution, riiiiight?

If it's unsafe to be inside with temp at 97-100 Please tell my boss, I have no ac and my office doesn't even have a window that opens it must be 100-105 in here, but I bought a fan in so I'm lucky I guess, the guys working on the trucks in the sun outside I feel for them. My boss says if I leave it's a 3 day suspension without pay. I guess I should of been a teacher I'd make more than $10.00 hr. nice chatting good day.

Some of you are just down right sickos! Why would you use some of that language?! Also, did you forget that we are talking about children?! Sure, I never had early dismissals growing up for heat but times have changes and I'm sure the schools did it to keep the kids safe. Get over yourselves...and clean up your mouths!!!

Had you been a teacher, you'd no doubt understand the concept of "should HAVE, would HAVE, could HAVE", instead of that annoying, incorrect "should OF".

That being said, sux to be you I guess. But just because you chose a dead end job due to lack of education, doesn't mean everyone else (read elementary school children) has to suffer also.

Maybe if Schools wouldn't close down for an inch of snow during the winter maybe they would be done with School by the end of May and this would be a non-issue.

When I attended schools in Easton 50 years ago we did not get off for heat at all and for snow only rarely.

35 years ago, school was already over by this date, maybe the 10th if there were snow days.

Adults can tolerate the heat much better than young kids.

Open the windows,, open the doors, add a fan, and turn out the lights. That's how we were treated as elementary students in the 70's. And, we were lucky to get a fan :)

Welll maybe they should design the classrooms with big ole ceiling fans.
Between the windows opening wide and those fans I cant recall ever suffering from the heat.

Yea and whats your point? Temperatures can and do change. Alot of summers can be cooler than others.

The reason the kids had off so many snow days is the same reason they have off today-some whacko making the call!

Maybe they should try designing schools with trees planted close to the bldg, to porvide some shade and cool play areas for recess.

It use to be done that way yrs ago and guess what it worked!

I agree! What wimpy children or should I say wimpy adults. They can't stand outside for the bus when it's cold, now it's too hot. They can't go to school if it snows or might snow. This generation of parents are f"cking kids up by making them wimpy, allergic to everything, can't spank, don't obey the law generation!
