The warm temperatures are coming to the peninsula.

And Wicomico County education officials are reminding parents they can have their children opt out of class at schools that are not fully air conditioned when the temperatures get above 85 degrees.

The facilities affected include Bennett Middle School as well as West Salisbury Elementary and East Salisbury Elementary.

Students must provide a note from the parents or guardian when they return to school.

They will be able to make up the work they missed with an excused absence.

For those who choose to attend school during hot days education officials say they will try to provide such things as water bottles and fans in the classroom and hallways.
