School is just back in session but with a heat wave likely, a New Jersey school district is cutting the school day short.

Trenton's public school district said staff and students will be dismissed early every day this week due to expected high temperatures and humidity.

The district announced through a recorded message that students in elementary schools and the Stokes Early Childhood Center will dismiss at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Middle schools will dismiss at 12:45 p.m. those days and high schools will dismiss at 12:30 p.m.
