Chicago Public Schools on Thursday ordered all regularly scheduled CPS summer school classes canceled Friday because of the heat.
CPS Chief Executive Officer Jean-Claude Brizard canceled classes for students and teachers, but said school leaders and engineers are expected to report to work, according to a CPS statement.
CPS also canceled its summer sports camps Friday.
On Thursday, all non-air-conditioned CPS schools were closed.
“Due to reports of the excessive heat that will continue throughout Chicago again [Friday], we have determined that it is in the best interest of our students and instructional staff to cancel summer school for all CPS sponsored sites [Friday],” Brizard said.
The National Weather Service is predicting a high temperature of 103 degrees Friday.
