Tuesday's extreme heat is resulting in some weather-related closings. That includes an early dismissal for the Rockford Public School district.
Here as an announcement from RPS regarding the early dismissal:
Due to the anticipated heat index this afternoon, RPS is dismissing students two hours earlier than normal dismissal time. Y Care programs at Bloom, Carlson, Froberg, Gregory, Johnson, Rolling Green, Spring Creek, Thompson and Washington will be open after the early release. All other after-school care programs are canceled. After-school activities will run on a modified schedule developed by each school. Contact your school office for details about extracurricular activities. We will continue to monitor the weather for the rest of the week.
We will add more weather-related closings as they come in.
