Heat Wave to Hit Haverhill and Lawrence Towns
Boston, MA - There’s yet another heat wave about to hit Massachusetts, and the towns of Haverhill and Lawrence are said to get the worst of it.
This week’s expected heat wave is said to be so hot, local school districts in the towns of Haverhill and Lawrence are issuing early dismissals.
Starting Monday, August 27, 2018, to Thursday, August 30, 2018, the Lawrence Public Schools will be released from school early. As for the preschool children, all preschool classes are canceled for the entire week. School will start up after Labor Day with normal start and end times for all public schools and preschools in the surrounding areas.
As for the Haverhill Public Schools, early dismissal days will start on Tuesday, August 28, 2018, and continue through Wednesday, August 29, 2018.
As far as scheduled screenings go for the Kindergarten students in Haverhill, parents are still encouraged to attend all meetings for their children. The district wants to push for no cancellations of the screening meetings, as this will make the start of the Kindergarten school year harder for all school officials.
Both towns of Haverhill and Lawrence have all public schools closed on Friday, August 31, 2018, for Labor Day weekend. Additionally, all schools are closed on Monday, September 1, 2018, for the holiday Labor Day, as they always are.
The National Weather Service is stating that this week’s heat wave will reach very close to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. According to them, temperatures will range throughout the 90s on both Tuesday and Wednesday. This will make it hard for teachers and staff to keep the kids calm, cool, and collected.
Town officials are encouraging the citizens of both towns to stay indoors and stay hydrated this week. With temperatures as high as these, dehydration can occur faster than you think.
As for surrounding cities, weather officials are asking citizens to watch temperatures and stay indoors if necessary. The heat wave may spread to other cities in Massachusetts, they just may not get as high as almost 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
Stay cool ladies and gentleman and stay hydrated!
