Fact is that lettuce likes cool climate but there are some that tolerate the heat better and will not bolt that early. Try more varieties in the future. I have some Korean and Portuguese varieties growing now that seem to cope well with the actual 38.5C! My nutrients are at 33.4 C and that doesn't seem to bother them either

Vale, vale...
