Bourne and Barnstable Schools Closed
The extreme heat expected on Wednesday has led to school officials in both Barnstable and Bourne to cancel school for the day.
Bourne began classes on Tuesday and will resume on Thursday.
Barnstable’s first day of the new school year was supposed to be Wednesday, but has been postponed to Thursday because of the projected heat index of 103 degrees.
Barnstable also cancelled all after school activities both on and off campus.
