SPRINGFIELD -- The heat is forcing District 186 to send kids home early at more than 30 schools. Only four buildings have air conditioning, but the district is dismissing all students an hour early Tuesday and Wednesday to avoid confusion.

Superintendent Bob Leming says it will let nearly 15,000 students get home safely while still getting in a full day of school. Leming says the district could dismiss schools early the rest of the week, but he'll wait to see what the weather is like Wednesday.
