A handful of local schools may dismiss early again today due to the excessive heat.  East Alton - Wood River High School, and Roxana Junior and Senior High Schools are among the area schools without air conditioning.  East Alton - Wood River High School Superintendent Dr. John Pearson says they have to wait until the start of the school day to announce how they will proceed.

Pearson comments

He says the cost of installing air conditioning is prohibitive, as the possibility was looked at a few years ago when the new heating system was installed.
