  • our schools are already out for the summer. Early dismissal for heat?? holy cow! I grew up in Alaska and we only got early dismissal for weather 2 times during all of my school years there (K thru 12), and it was definately NOT because it was too warm. WOW!

  • Yes
    What I don't get is--we didn't have early dismissals when it was hot when I was a kid and we couldn't wear shorts to school. What's up with that?

  • Early dismissal today & tomorrow here. We were already on shorten days Friday through the last day on Wednesday. My DH is a big weather buff with a Davis Weather System that gives the exact details of every weather data component for our backyard. The Davis said we hit a high of 98 today with a heat index of 115. I don't see the big deal about leaving school early when it's THAT hot and grades were turned in a week ago. On the agenda for my DD"s 1st grade class today? some review worksheets, ice cream party, board games, cleaning the classroom. Seriously? The hour and a half they lost with early dismissal wasn't making them miss anything other than another round of Yahtzee.

    As for what we did as kids - we also didn't wear bike helmets or have car seats and booster seats. We inhaled 2nd hand smoke. We did a lot of things no one would dream of doing today. Just because it's different than our youth doesn't make it wrong.
