The Syracuse City School District announced Friday that elementary and middle schools will operate on half-day morning schedules three days next week due to high heat and humidity expected.

Students will let out early on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday because of "extremely high temperatures expected," the district said.

High school schedules will not change. All schools are closed Wednesday, June 19, for Juneteenth.

Central Square Schools said students in that district would have a half day next Tuesday.

A bill sponsored by state Sen. James Skoufis proposes an 82-degree classroom temperature cap in New York. It would be in addition to the 65-degree minimum requirement already in place.

The legislation passed the Senate and Assembly, but has not been signed into law. It would take effect Sept. 1, 2025.
