My kids go back to school at the end of the month and I’m hoping that they were able to get the air conditioning fixed in the building that they are going to be in.
They had lots of trouble with their HVAC system last school year, and the air conditioning in particular was terrible.
I felt bad about even sending my kids to school most days because I felt like the indoor air quality in their classrooms was just completely awful. I would rather them be in a school where the air conditioning was actually working, but at that point I didn’t know what else to do. They had to go to school, whether the indoor air quality in the building was any good or not. I was made aware of the fact that over the summer, the school board was supposed to be voting on whether or not they could install air conditioning systems in all of the school buildings in our district. When I found out that they had finally voted on putting air conditioning in the classrooms, I was super excited for my kids. That’s because they knew that the school was going to feel so much better when they started school back with the air conditioning running. I know that there is no way to keep them from disliking their classes, but at least now they won’t hate the fact that they actually have to go inside of the school building! I’m so glad that they are going to have better indoor air quality this year.
