And so it begins!

The first full week of school for some students in Massachusetts will mean early dismissal because of the heat and humidity that is expected in our region this week.

Both Lawrence and Haverhill School officials have decided they will hold early dismissals this week because of the oppressive weather that is forecasted in our region for most of the week.

The Lawrence school system sent out alerts saying their early dismissals would begin today (Monday, August 27), and go through Thursday, August 30th. They will also have no pre-school classes the entire week.

Haverhill public school students will have early dismissal beginning tomorrow (Tuesday, August 28th), as well as Wednesday, August 29th.

As with all questions regarding early dismissals, it's best to contact your individual school personally to get the most up-to-date information.
