SANTA CLARA COUNTY (BCN) — Sweltering temperatures have prompted one school district in Santa Clara County to have emergency minimum days at all of its eight schools Wednesday and Thursday.

The Campbell Union High School District plans to release students around 11:30 a.m. at its campuses in San Jose, Saratoga and Campbell because of a heat advisory issued by the National Weather Service.

Some campuses will be following their own minimum day schedule. Branham High School in San Jose will release students at 11:10 a.m. from the sixth period classes and 12:10 p.m. if they have a seventh period class.

Outdoor activities at the schools will either be canceled or moved indoors, according to school district officials.

The heat advisory is in effect from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.

Highs in the Santa Clara Valley Wednesday and tomorrow range between 99 and 104 degrees, with northwest winds ranging between 5 to 10 mph, according to the weather service.

The public is advised to stay hydrated, stay out of sunlight and to not leave any people or pets inside a car, according to the weather service.
