Students cope with hot classrooms as heat sets in
Chicago Public Schools dealt with the heat on the second day of school
Some schools are now equipped with window units, but some schools don’t have air conditioning at all.
A CPS spokesperson says, “The overwhelming majority of schools in the district have full or partial a/c. We don’t have an updated count as of today. But even more schools this year have it than did last year.”
Several suburban schools closed early due to the heat.
