    Activities were planned for the entire student body, and the high school cafeteria provided lunch to the children.

    Officials said a district notice went out to parents and students. Authorities said students could be checked out without affecting the child's attendance.

    Students were transported back to EAH for regular school dismissal, and all activities before and after school were canceled as well.

    Vendors worked onsite throughout the night and into Wednesday to fix the problem.

    Millington officials said, "With the extreme heat, our number one concern is the safety and well-being of all students."
