Jacksonville District 117 Superintendent released the following statement via his Facebook page this morning, regarding this week’s one-hour early dismissal schedule in the city’s schools.
The weather just can’t seem to cooperate. When I made the call for the early out on Thursday the week was predicted to be much warmer.
I have considered cancelling the early out schedule, but once that call is made I don’t want to rescind.
I make the call for the week so everyone can make plans. Teachers, coaches, parents, etc. make plans for the week once I have made the call.
I apologize for this flawed system. In a couple of years we hope to have every room air conditioned and we won’t need to release for heat.
