The Heat is Up
"Are you concerned and confused as to why Westowne doesn't have air conditioning?" Westowne Elementary PTA asks in a post on their website. "The county school system knows that our school reaches unhealthy temperatures in hot weather. The PTA, the school administration and individual parents have campaigned for years for adequate climate control. In response, the county school system has told us that we aren't on the list for a facilities upgrade. During a recent county review, Catonsville Elementary was selected to receive air conditioning. This decision means that we are now the only school in Catonsville that is not air conditioned."
