Rocky Would Not Recognize His City

Just as winter brings snow days, summer brings “heat days.”

With temperatures expected to hit the high 90s this afternoon, many schools in the Philadelphia area sent students home early. The private Pen Ryn School in Fairless Hills decided yesterday to remain closed today.

At the Andrew Jackson Elementary School in South Philadelphia, students were let out at 12:09 p.m. By 12:35 p.m. only three students at the 333-pupil school waited for their parents to pick them up. By 12:45 the school was empty. Just the principal’s office is air conditioned.
