Excessive heat cuts Philadelphia summer school short

    If you can’t take the heat, get out of the classroom.

    The School District of Philadelphia has announced its summer school programs will close early today because of the heat, and will shut down altogether tomorrow.

    School will let out at 1 p.m. today, and tomorrow will be a day off. So much for summer school.
