We planted them in May and are getting male blossoms but have not seen any female blossoms. Our temperatures have been in the 90’s for some time, but we have watered them.

This is typical behavior for a squash plant. They will produce mostly male (non-fruiting) blossoms early in the season and will gradually start to produce more female blossoms as the season progresses. Give it some time and you will see it start fruiting.
