My six inch fan just broke and my lights are in their air cooled hoods. Should I take the glass off until tomorrow or will they be ok for about 8 hours until I get a new fan? Please help.

not a problem unless your grow room temps become unmanageable, i do have air cooled hoods but it just allows me to run the ac less

How many lights do you have on the fan? what wattage? If they are 600w or better, you will definitely need to get the glass off or get cooler air to them asap or you will lose the bulbs. They may not fail immediately but being too hot will cause them to break down fast and fail prematurely. I lost 2 bulbs like that after the fan failed overnight. After the lights went out, they didn't come back on as both bulbs were blown.
