Philadelphia public schools closing early today

Posted: June 12, 2012

Philadelphia public schools will close at noon today because of expected heat and humidity.

The School District said in a notice posted on its website Sunday that it decided to send students homes early today because of a forecast of temperatures in the upper 90s.

The forecast this morning, however, only calls for a high of 82 under partly sunny skies. But it also will be humid.

The noon closing also affects early childhood programs and after school programs will be canceled, the district said.

Routine transportation will be in place for students, and the district staff will remain in the building until all students have left or have been picked up.
