MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- Unusually hot weather for this time of year had local schools trying to beat the heat Tuesday.
Some like, North Muskegon Elementary, had cooling systems running throughout the day.
At Reeths Puffer Elementary, there were fans in every classroom because the school has no air conditioning. The principal even bought students and staff ice cream to help them cool off.
"Holy smokes it is a hot one out there, we're trying to stay cool anyway we can," said Principal Paul Klimsza. "Work is hard today in the hot weather but our kids are pulling through, can't wait for fall."
School leaders said a shortened, 15-minute recess made the heat more tolerable.
