    The boilers broke in one of the buildings in school. It's ****ing freezing and there's no hot water. Apparently they've ordered some electric heaters (not fixing the boiler since we're getting a new building) but THE ELECTRICITY WENT OUT HALF AN HOUR AGO AND ISN'T BACK ON.

    Should we even be in school like wtf???

    That's happened with our school so many times but if they aren't able to heat the school up then they should send you home

    You'll live.

    As long as it doesnt go below a certain temp, its fine. Although we had to be sent home whenever the electric went off.

    I believe that the law is that it must reach 20℃ within one hour of starting.
