Cold Classrooms at Ft. White
Broken heaters were repaired in a Columbia county elementary school last week, but some kids say its still too cold; and now their parents are getting involved.
Ft. White principal Wanda Conner says the school's heaters were not working last week-but were fixed right away.
Conner says the temperatures of the rooms are in the mid-60's, however some parents are saying that's still too cold. The Department of Health's heating standards requires that classroom heaters be capable of reaching 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
Superintendent Mike Millikin says the school board is doing everything to keep the rooms warm during these unusually cold days.
