FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Bishop Dwenger High School is closed Thursday and multiple Allen County school districts have canceled outdoor activities in anticipation of high temperatures and humidity.
Bishop Dwenger let families know that students would stay home that day as the air conditioning wasn’t working. “While we thought the A/C was fixed, we came into a warm building this morning,” the school’s Facebook post read.
Fort Wayne Community Schools (FWCS) has canceled all outdoor athletic games for its high schools, and East Allen County Schools has canceled all outdoor activities both Wednesday and Thursday.
Practices for middle school and high school sports that are indoors will continue as planned Thursday, according to FWCS.
Students should contact their coaches about any potential changes to practices or games.
FWCS also reminded students who will be outside Thursday to take regular breaks and drink water to stay hydrated.
