It won’t shock anyone to learn that it got mighty hot Monday.
School Superintendent Philip Streifer said that some of the elementary schools had temperatures above 90 degrees in the morning.
That’s why Bristol, along with Plymouth and many other districts across Connecticut, opted to send students home early rather than risk further exposure to high heat.
Streifer said that given the forecasts for Tuesday, “We’re going to do the same thing again tomorrow.”
Streifer said that officials have already made the decision to shut down early again on Tuesday to help parents make arrangements.
The heat wave is expected to break Tuesday night.
