It is really hot today, and several other schools are closing early. Why isn’t Scotia-Glenville doing the same?

RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment. Three other school districts – Cairo-Durham, Columbia Christian Academy and Hudson City schools – closed early because of the heat. We looked at that situation but felt our students were safe in the buildings, since it tends to get cool overnight. Students were encouraged to stay hydrated; physical education students were kept inside because of the heat.
