Detroit Public Schools’ summer school classes will release at noon on Wednesday, July 7 and Thursday, July 8 due to a heat wave.
Lunch will still be provided at school sites both days, and transportation will be adjusted accordingly. Parents with concerns, or those who have children that are particularly susceptible to heat exhaustion or other pre-existing medical problems, are encouraged to make decisions that best suit their children.
Principals and staff must still report to the school buildings both days. Ongoing professional development will continue.
