Southern Colorado has been experiencing record-breaking heat which can have an impact on students venturing back into the classroom after the summer break. Several schools across Southern Colorado, particularly in Pueblo County, do not have central air conditioning. This has led to hotter classrooms and a possible uncomfortable environment with the return of required protective face coverings and other school policies.
