When I was in highschool and college during the 90's I remember having to stay in class, but the teachers would bring in fans or take us to the cafeateria, or auditorium where AC was present.
That's right! How come we handled it like we did and nobody can today? Hell, we weren't even allowed to wear shorts at the time and bottled water wasn't even a staple. We did what we had to do.

Buncha wussies if you ask me. 'Sides, I ain't got no AC in my house so my kid'd just come home to sweat there instead.

And WHAT did they do "back in the day" when there was no air conditioner? They STAYED IN SCHOOL....That's PATHETIC...

Parents STILL have to work, to pay bills & single parents struggle as well.

Parents NOW have leave their job early? HOW HORRIBLE... ESPECIALLY when you have a NON-EMPATHIZING, NON-SYMPATHETIC, GREEDY & UNGRATEFUL employer like VERIZON or COMCAST.

what's the big deal? grades are already in. the kids in the public school system don't want to learn anyway. parents were mad because, they had to get off the couch and pick up their kids from school.
P.S. jerry springer is mad at alot of people today.

Anyone hear of common sense? Wear light clothing etc------ It's summer--what did you expect? A little early--but summer any way.

Ditto. Also I went to high school in Alabama and we NEVER had "snow days". As a result of no closings because of the weather our summer recess began before Memorial Day.
