A number of West Michigan schools closed or had half days on Friday and again Monday due to the heat. Several football games were pushed back and Union High School’s homecoming game was postponed. On Saturday, Thornapple Kellogg High School held its homecoming dance outside because the gym — which doesn’t have air conditioning — was too hot.
