Twitter Reacts to Prince George's Co. Schools Closing Early Because of Heat

September 5, 2018

People had jokes after Prince George's County Public Schools announced they're closing early Wednesday, September 5, due to "high temperatures." 

"PGCPS will dismiss all schools 2 hours early on Wednesday, 9/5 due to high temperatures. Riverdale ES & Margaret Brent Regional Schools are closed for air conditioning repairs. We will reassess for Thursday, 9/6. All PGCPS Before & After School programs will close at 4pm," the school system posted on Twitter.

Lack of air conditioning seems to be a valid reason for some of the schools closing early but people wondered why the entire county would be off early due to heat.
