    District officials say of the list above, 22 schools have no air conditioning. The rest have air conditioning in less than 80 percent of the campus. 

    The district is working to install air conditioning at all schools by the end of summer 2019.

    It's not district policy to call for a minimum-day schedule on the first day of a heat wave.

    Even coastal areas were under a heat advisory with temperatures expected in the mid-80s.

    To avoid heat exhaustion, it's advised to stay in an air-conditioned area during the hottest hours of the day.
