The Chicago Public Schools district plans to keep schools open today as temps are set to reach record highs for the year. Meanwhile, at least 16 schools in the Chicagoland area are closed and more than 40 other schools plan to close early due to the heat. See a list of school closures and early closings here.
The CPS district has classrooms, offices and entire school buildings that have no air conditioning. See more info on the air conditioning situation at CPS facilities here.
