The Philadelphia School District plans to dismiss students at 1 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday to expected high temperatures.
The district says all after-school activities including athletic programs and professional development sessions are canceled for those days. School employees are expected to work normal schedules and administrative offices will operate on regular business hours.
The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory through Wednesday night for the region, warning of temperatures in the low to mid 90s.
