You can turn the thermostat as high as you want, it is a closed system, so if you do not disturb it it will remain closed while the water main is shut off.
If you don't have a low water cut off for the heating boiler, it could get permanently damaged if the heating system was to completely drain and the boiler continued to run while the main water was shut off.
Good Luck. e-plumber
