Children Suffer in Sweltering Heat After A/C Failure at Two Schools
WEEKI WACHEE – Hundreds of students at Weeki Wachee High School and Winding Waters K-8 are sweating at their respective schools today and it’s not because of test time jitters.
RNRF received calls from concerned parents this morning, stating the air conditioning was shut off at both schools.
We contacted Eric Van de Boogaard with Hernando County Schools, who said a blown gasket in the heat exchange unit is to blame for the failure. Unfortunately, there is no way to know when the unit will be repaired, according to Van de Boogaard.
Some parents have decided to pull their students from school today, rather than have them endure the sweltering heat.
We will bring more as this story develops.
