A scorching summer heat wave resulted in the early closure of all eight schools in the Bay Area’s Campbell Union High School District on Wednesday and Thursday.

According to Bay Area news station KRON 4, most of the schools will release students around 11:30 a.m. on both days. Over 7,000 students will be affected.

Many of the classrooms reportedly do not have air conditioning which makes the region’s triple-digit temperatures even more dangerous to the students. The temperatures have reached more than 20 degrees above the average for this time of year.
