No A/C forces two high schools to send students home

CREATED Sep. 3, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Students at Durango High School left early Tuesday because of no air conditioning.

According to the Clark County School District, students were sent home from the school on Dewey Drive, near South Rainbow Boulevard, beginning at noon.

Students on buses were transported to their normal afternoon bus stops.

Valley High School was also without air conditioning.

CCSD said to ensure student safety, students who walk to school or take the bus were released early from school. Buses were provided immediately for non-magnet students.

Magnet students remained in the school gym, where there was air conditioning, until their regular buses picked them up. They arrived home at their usual time.

As of 7 p.m. Tuesday, CCSD said both air conditioning units had been fixed.

Classes and bus transportation for both schools will resume as normal on Wednesday.
