    RookieTeacher16, I would have been a hot, sweaty mess if I had to go through what you did!

    At my new school, my room is decent. The A/C just stays on & it gets pretty cold. Good thing I don't get cold easily.

    That describes all of us in the building this week--staff and students are all dripping. Hoping for some relief next week!

    This was me yesterday too. My room only has one window; most classrooms have 2-3. I have ceiling fans at least but they don't do much when it's already stifling. Honestly I think the gym was worse than my classroom.

    We have uniforms and the kids are allowed to wear gym uniforms yesterday and today. I think that helped a little bit. But I know one of my students was picked up at lunch bc her mom said it was too hot, and another student missed two hours of class with a bad headache. I feel bad for these kids.

    My co-teachers would tell the students to shower. This was at a low-income alternative education setting. We also asked for deodorant donations and received a lot of soap from the local community. But honestly is the best policy with hygiene.

    Hey sounds like my school. We did our end of year testing without an air conditioner. Asking children to sit through a marathon testing session trapped in a 90+ degree room was child abuse. I spent my testing time bringing kids back and spraying them with a spray bottle so I wouldn't have kids dropping from heat sicknesses.
