This is the third week in a row heat has prompted early dismissals in South Dakota schools.
Districts in the central part of the state saw the school day disrupted Friday with temperatures in the 90s.
Afternoon had hardly arrived in Hoven before sweating kids left school for home. They're getting used to that routine this year.
"We try to get through everything we would in a normal day. We just have less time to do it," Hoven teacher Chantel Stoecker said.
Few rooms in the school have air conditioning. On hot days, kids sit through shortened classes before leaving early.
Students aren’t asking to sit in a hot building, but even they are saying they'd like to see a normal schedule again.
"It's still kind of hard because I still have to do the homework. So it's kind of piling up and it's kind of hard when you don't have your full class to work on it," senior Tanner Heuer said.
From Hoven, neighboring schools to the south had a disrupted Friday courtesy of the heat as well.
"We really haven't had a full complete week of school yet," Faulkton Superintendent Joel Price said.
Price has been watching forecasts and is looking forward to a gradual cool down next week. He knows school days will still get warm but rooms have fans and the school has water stations on every floor.
That said, he joins those in Hoven waiting for routine to replace the heat now filling school buildings.
"I think all of the teachers and students would say we're ready to get back to normal, get into the swing of things," Stoecker said.
