North Carolina elementary school closed for lack of heat
PLYMOUTH, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina elementary school has canceled classes for the second consecutive day because of problems with its heating system.
WITN-TV in Greenville reports Pines Elementary School in Washington County sent students home on Monday after officials learned the heating system couldn’t be fixed. Tuesday was an optional workday for staff as crews worked on repairs.
The Washington County Schools system said students will be out again Wednesday and Thursday while Pines awaits a new part for the heating system. Officials say it’s possible that the school will be closed all week.
Washington County Union School in Roper and Creswell Elementary also had heating issues on Monday, but they were resolved. In December, classes at Plymouth High School were cancelled because of a broken heating system.
