Worcester Public Schools Will Release Early For Heat Wave

WORCESTER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A blazing heat wave that's rolling across the region is now affecting the state's second-largest school district.

Worcester Public Schools will release three hours early on Monday and Tuesday because of the intense heat in the forecast.

The district said in a tweet that many of its schools are not air conditioned, and that COVID-19 rules prohibit students from using water fountains, so the schools would need to end before the heat of the day.

Water and lunch will be given out at school, but the district said parents should also pack extra water for their children.

Students who attend the Central MA Collaborative will have a full day of school.
