Hot weather sends some Ill. students home early


Champaign -- Hot weather is forcing a handful of central Illinois school districts with limited or no air conditioning to send students home early.


Schools in Arthur and Lovington are dismissing students early Monday afternoon. With heat expected to continue, administrators in nearby Bement told students they'll leave early every day through Wednesday.


The National Weather Service is predicting a week of high temperatures for much of the state with highs in the 90s.


The weather service has issued a heat advisory for parts of the state. Heat and high humidity are expected from noon Monday through 10 p.m. Tuesday in western Illinois. The weather service advises staying indoors when possible and drinking plenty of water to avoid heat-related illnesses. Checking on elderly relatives and neighbors is also a good idea.
