Central Air: School cool again

August 7, 2010

It came down to the wire, but everything is good to go at Central School.
On Friday, work was completed at the school on Westbrook Street to install temporary air conditioning unit, fixing a problem that started early in the Summer when the school’s existing units stopped working.
“They finished the work on Friday,” said West Point Superintendent Steve Montgomery. “It was close, we made it.”
The completion of the work prevents Montgomery and his staff from having to deal with the problem of having an entire school starting the new year without air conditioning, a predicament made worse by a Summer where temperatures have routinely reached triple digits.
Now, though, Montgomery and the rest of the school board will have to consider options on finding a permanent fix to the solution.
“We will be meeting on Monday night to see where we go from here,” Montgomery said. “The temporary units will get us through these hot months, but they are not a permanent solution.
“We will sit down as a board and come up with the best answer to this problem.”
The 2010-11 school year starts tomorrow for students throughout the district, but parents and students can tour Central today to get a look at their surroundings. The school will host an open house from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. this afternoon.
