SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Some San Jose schools are letting students out early amid a heat wave and an air quality alert.

KNTV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1hXiCxL) the Bay Area Air Quality Management District on Wednesday issued a Spare the Air Alert, used on days when air quality is forecast to be unhealthy.

The eight-school Campbell Union High School District is letting kids out at 11:30 a.m. No outdoor activities will be allowed.

A district official says more than half of the classrooms do not have air conditioning, and that this is the first time students have been released early due to heat.

Temperatures on Tuesday were in the 80s and 90s.



Cooling centers equipped with AC have been set up for residents in Santa Clara County and other parts of the Bay Area.
