The cold snap is causing a headache for some school districts in the East.
Pitt County Schools reported some heating issues and so did some schools in Pasquotank County.
Pamlico County School Officials say their heating system will take close to a full week to get up to speed.
This according to officials because the system's been used sparingly while the kids were on winter break.
Some students were wearing sweatshirts and long-sleeves in class on Tuesday, others were kept indoors for recess because of the frigid temps.
All of the school buses were tested by maintenance officials in late December to ensure they'd be up and running.
