Heat Prompts Short Tuesday at Some San Diego Schools

It was a hot day for students returning to their first day of class in the San Diego Unified School District today and with more heat in the forecast, officials have decided to kick in its hot weather plan.

More than 50 schools will operate under a minimum day tomorrow.

The modified day can affect schools that are unable to provide air-conditioning for students when the forecast calls for temperatures of 95 degrees or higher with a heat index of 103 degrees or higher.
