Columbus Kindergarten Class Loses Heat 3 Times In January
Parents of some students at the French immersion elementary school are upset that the kindergarten classroom has lost heat several times over the past month.
Angie Meeker has a kindergarten student at Ecole Kenwood.
"That day, they just sat in their classroom with their coats and scarves on, and they didn't tell us about it until we came to pick up the kids that day,” said Meeker.
Meeker said she considered keeping her daughter home from school the next day until the school assured her the students would be warm.
Columbus City Schools told 10TV that the classroom has lost heat three times over the past two weeks.
The district said the school has been keeping parents aware of the issues and that the students are having class in other areas of the school to stay warm.
But Meeker said that's a problem she wants fixed and soon.
“I would just like to see them back in their routine. Kids need that, that structure and that routine, especially 5 and 6 year olds. That's what they're used to,” said Meeker.
Columbus City Schools said they have been doing their best to fix the problem.
They have a repair scheduled for tomorrow and students are expected back in their normal classroom on Monday.
