AJ Ross reports on the early school dismissals in New Jersey.

Temperatures in the 90s and real-feels in the triple digits forced a number of schools to dismiss early Thursday, even though many were back in the classroom for the first time.

It was the very first day of school in Jersey City, but students were already getting out early because of a lack of air conditioning.

Dozens of school districts closed early due to the extreme heat.

The following schools closed early Thursday:
