Quincy Public and Parochial Schools will be dismissing early due to extreme heat indexes.

While school buildings are air conditioned, the majority of the main route buses are not. Lunch will be served. Outdoor activities will be canceled or moved indoors. “I do not take these decisions lightly but must ensure that all our students and staff are safe,” said QPS Superintendent Todd Pettit. “I appreciate your understanding as we navigate the extreme temperatures with the goal of keeping everyone safe.
