More than two dozen schools across KELOLAND are taking extra precautions to protect students from the heat by dismissing early Wednesday.
That includes Todd County, Douglas and Rapid City Area School Districts.
Rapid City Superintendent Tim Mitchell says that when temperatures surpass 90 degrees in classrooms with no air conditioning, there are concerns about stress on students and teachers.
Our KELOLAND meteorologists have forecasted high temperatures of 105 degrees in the Rapid City area, 106 degrees in the Pierre region and 98 degrees as a high in eastern South Dakota.
