CCS To Dismiss Early Tuesday Because Of Heat

Sep 3, 2018

The Columbus City Schools have announced they will close early Tuesday, due to high heat and humidity.

Schools will dismiss students 2 1/2 hours early, with buses arriving on the early schedule.  Latchkey programs will open early.  High school sports and extra-curricular activities will take place, but middle and elementary schools events are cancelled.

It's the third time in eight days students are being sent home early because of the heat.  While the district has added air conditioning to more buildings this year, many school buildings are not air conditioned.
