STAMFORD — It felt more like summer as students headed back to school in Stamford on Thursday. With temperatures predicted to be in the upper 80s, the district made the call Wednesday afternoon for an early dismissal on the first day, with some schools letting out as early as 11:45 a.m. It’s the first early dismissal for heat on Back-to-School Day in recent history.
