A/C outage prompts closure at Durango High, Valley High, UNLV

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Air conditioning issues forced early dismissal Tuesday for students at Durango High School, Valley High School and some students at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

The Clark County School District said the school located at 7100 W. Dewey Dr., was without air conditioning during the morning, which prompted the dismissal. The school district said buses arrived at noon to take students to their regular afternoon bus stops.

A similar situation at Valley High School, a magnet school, prompted an early dismissal. Officials said students who walk or take the bus were released early. They said magnet students will stay in the gymnasium, where the air conditioner is working, until their buses pick them up.

UNLV posted on its Twitter account that classes at Beam Hall were canceled Tuesday because of an air conditioning outage.

There was no immediate word on what caused either of the outages.

Clark County School District on Tuesday evening reported the air conditioning systems at Durango and Valley high schools have been repaired and that classes and bus service for both schools will resume as normal on Wednesday.
