HERMITAGE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Metro Nashville Public School started the new school year off with air conditioning issues.

A spokesperson with the district said they have ordered parts to fix the partial outage at Tulip Grove Elementary. The hope was to have the air conditioning fixed by the first day of school, but due to the parts arriving late, the district estimates the issue will be resolved by Wednesday.

Some classrooms, but not all, and the cafeteria area are impacted by the outage.

The district brought in industrial-size fans to help cool down these areas.
