Students at Irvington H.S. suffering without air conditioningPosted: Updated:
Students at Irvington High School say they are suffering without any air conditioning. They say temperatures are continuing to rise, making the classrooms unbearably humid. School administrators have apparently refused to relax the dress code, and confiscate water bottles to prevent water fights in the hallways. With few water fountains in place to serve several hundred students, students say the only places they can find relief, ironically, are in the administrators' offices. "There's no air in the building," one student said. "But when I go to my administrator?s office, it feels like a freezer. That's the funny part." The school's superintendent tells News 12 New Jersey that she stands by her decisions to enforce the dress code and water bottle ban.
