A blast of late summer heat caused disruptions Wednesday for schools from Michigan to Virginia, with some districts dismissing students early and others holding classes online just days into the new academic year.

Temperatures weren’t as high as last month’s triple-digit deadly heat wave, but schools in states including Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Massachusetts cited inadequate air conditioning in cutting days short this week.

Temperatures in the mid-90s also led to online learning in Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
