Tomorrow’s forecast calls for a high of 90, but says that with other factors, it could feel much hotter.

The public can check the district’s website for updates, District’s Information Hotline at 215-400-INFO (4636). The public should also note that schools with a graduation ceremony planned for Tuesday have the option to stay open for the ceremony.

Stay cool, Philly!
