More Than 80 San Diego Schools to End Early Tuesday and Wednesday in Heatwave

The schools have air conditioning in less than 80 percent of the campus.

Eighty-five schools will be on a minimum day schedule Tuesday and Wednesday due to expected excessive heat, the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) announced. 

San Diego County is under a fire weather and excessive warnings until Wednesday due to Santa Ana winds and hot temperatures. 

"The safety and well-being of students and staff is a top priority for the district. We want to make sure they are as comfortable as possible so teaching and learning can continue. As a result, our schools have a number of guidelines in place for planning instruction during hot weather," the district said in a statement.

Schools on a minimum day schedule generally do not have enough air-conditioning for the high temperatures forecast. Under SDUSD policy, those schools with less than 80 percent of classrooms air-conditioned may move to a minimum day schedule.
