School Board officials address air conditioning issues at several Mercer County schools

Posted:
MERCER COUNTY (WVVA)- Air conditioning is restored at one Mercer County school while two others continue classes without it.

Mercer County Schools Superintendent Dr. Deborah Akers tells WVVA that air conditioning has been restored to Montcalm High School as of Wednesday morning, while Bluefield Middle School and Glenwood Middle School have little or no air conditioning capability. 

Dr. Akers tells us the issue at Bluefield Middle is related to a problem with an oil pump, and the issue at Glenwood Middle is related to a compressor failure. 

No timeframe has been given on when air conditioning will be restored at the two schools, but Dr. Akers stressed to us that engineers continue to work to fix the problem.
