2009 was a very comfortable year for students, but 2008 was a scorcher! This year will fall somewhere in between the two. With high temperatures forecast in the middle and upper 80s all week, the students will need to be in shorts and tshirts to stay cool.

Hopefully the schools keep the air conditioning running on high until temps level off, and the Fall season takes over.
