High Temps Prompt A Second Day Of Early Dismissal For CCS


Another day of unseasonably high temperatures has led Columbus City Schools officials to call for a second shortened school day.  

On Tuesday, middle and high school students will be sent home at noon, and elementary school students will be sent home at 1pm.  Middle school sports will be cancelled, although high school sports and events - including sports training - will take place as scheduled.  It's officially Autumn, but Columbus saw it's third consecutive day of summer-like 90 degree temperatures on Monday.
