Isle of Wight County Schools' HVAC technicians and Trane consultants worked all day to resolve the air conditioning issue at Westside Elementary School.

Because of this timeline, Westside Elementary will be closed again tomorrow, Wednesday, September 5, and reopen on Thursday, September 6 operating on a regular schedule.
