Some Schools See Heating Issues With Cold Weather

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.

    Perhaps the charming student, "Crazy" should pay more attention in English class and learn to write properly, instead of run-on sentences without punctuation and including the cutesy little "idk" that leaves his/her entire comment nothing more than a joke. I don't see how he/she could have even been promoted to high school with that level of writing, it is truly depressing what has happened to this country. I am sure that this individual is not too cold to text message, however.

    At our school in Pitt County, our students are allowed to wear jackets (without hoods) in class as long as the teacher clears it with an administrator first. Administrators at other schools just need to use a little bit of common sense in this cold weather.

    Bertie High is cold. I am sure the Early College and the STEM School have adequate heat, but we are freezing in the main building. Don't we matter! HELP!

    Heck, my teacher wont let us wear our jackets or warm undershirts shirts under our uniform so we have to deal with the cold! Of course, all my shirts that i can wear under my uniform don't keep me warm and i know I'm not the only one that has this problem! Uniforms suck!
