Schools in Watauga County will close early today- the elementary schools at
12:30 and the high school at 1:00, due to the heat wave.
the second day back for Watauga students, and the lack of air conditioning is a
brutal way to welcome them back from summer vacation.
The new high school should solve a lot of these issues
for future high school students. Heat issues were specifically addressed in the
design of the building. The new high school will not help current sophomores,
juniors and seniors, however, as it is not expected to open until 2010.
