After canceling class at the 20 Indian Prairie School District schools without air conditioning on September 10, the district has announced classes at those schools are additionally canceled for September 11. Read the full press release below:
In looking at the weather forecast for tonight and the continued high temperatures expected for tomorrow, district administrators have decided to cancel classes at the 20 schools without air-conditioning on Wednesday, September 11. The temperatures experienced today, with little relief expected tonight, will not allow our buildings to sufficiently cool down in time to handle tomorrow’s anticipated high temperatures. Staff members will report to work in all district buildings. Curriculum Night events that were scheduled in schools without air-conditioning are being rescheduled.
The YMCA's Safe n' Sound program in schools without air-conditioning has also been canceled for Wednesday. Classes are only being canceled in the district's 20 schools that do not have air-conditioning. All other schools in the district will operate as normal on Wednesday.
The elementary schools where classes will be canceled on Wednesday, September 11, include: Brookdale, Brooks, Builta, Clow, Cowlishaw, Fry, Georgetown, Gombert, Graham, Kendall, Longwood, McCarty, Patterson, Spring Brook, Steck, Watts, Welch, White Eagle, and Young. Classes have also been canceled at Indian Plains, the district’s alternative high school.
