Superintendent: Niles Intermediate School’s temperature is OK

Niles Superintendent Ann Marie Thigpen addressed complaints that Niles Intermediate School classrooms were too cold.

NILES, Ohio (WKBN) – After receiving some complaints into the newsroom about cold classrooms at Niles Intermediate School, WKBN 27 First News went to the superintendent to ask her about it.

Superintendent Ann Marie Thigpen said she received a few complaints from parents this morning too, asking her if third grade students were supposed to bring blankets to keep warm in school.

Thigpen said she immediately called the principal and asked him to personally check the temperature in each classroom to make sure it wasn’t cold.

“The results were that every classroom was hovering around 70 degrees,” she said. “One classroom was a little chilly, at 65 degrees.”

Thigpen said the maintenance supervisor at Niles Intermediate can also check the temperatures of every classroom from his desk, and he will be monitoring those temperatures to make sure it doesn’t get too cold.
