Schools Closing Due to Heat
According to Philadelphia School District spokesperson Fernando Gallard, Philadelphia schools are closing early due to heat today, and all after-school activities are cancelled.
Parents at Greenfield received a call at 11:50 informing them the school would close at 12:15 — less than half an hour’s notice. McCall School is also reportedly closing at the same time. The district announced city-wide closings at noon, with 15 minutes to spare.
