Power outage knocks out air conditioning at Las Vegas school

Updated August 16, 2018 - 10:23 am

Students at Adcock Elementary School in Las Vegas were without air conditioning on Thursday after an early morning power outage.

Power to the school went out at about 4 a.m., said district spokesman Dave Sheehan. While the power was restored by 8:50 a.m. — just in time for the first bell — maintenance crews were on their way to repair the air conditioning, which remained out of commission as of 9:20 a.m.
