All schools in the Philadelphia School District had a shortened day on Monday due to the heat.

The schools were at noon, including early childhood programs.

After-school programs were cancelled and regular transportation was available at noon.

A spokesman for the district says the heat and humidity, coupled with the high heat over the weekend, likely made classrooms just too hot for students.
