More than 70 campuses in the San Diego Unified School District will go on a minimum day schedule again Friday because of the continuing heat wave, district officials said.

When temperatures are expected to be 95 degrees or higher with a heat index of 103 degrees or higher, campuses with air conditioning in less than 80 percent of their classrooms may be instructed to move to a minimum day schedule.
