My kid has been coming back to our little beach house from school in an irritable mood every day, I believe, for the last couple of weeks.
- She has been walking in the front door, slamming it with a frown on her face, plus heading straight into her private room separate from so much as saying hello.
Then a single afternoon she came into my room late at night plus asked myself and others if she could stay beach house from school the next day. My heart felt like it crashed inside my chest, because she consistently enjoyed school. Something is entirely wrong. I asked her why she wanted to skip school that next day. She said simply that the weather forecasters are predicting uncomfortable temperatures in the high nineties. I asked, “What does the summer temperature have to do with going to school?” My kid said that actually it has everything to do with how fast she would have a migraine by fourth period. She explained that the school cooling system has been totally broken for weeks. How were they able to concentrate on their studies when it was a hundred degrees inside? I called the school to inquire about their existing Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system. The student affairs office assistant promptly said that they have been working on the evaporator plus air duct system for two weeks. She explained the difficulty in finding updated parts, because the equipment was an older model and was no longer produced. However, the wonderful news was that they got the county funding approved to install a current Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system. I told my kid to go ahead plus wait to go back to school, because they would be getting the cooling plan shortly.
