(Las Vegas, NV) — Students at Diskin Elementary School will be sharing classrooms with another campus for now. The school near Rainbow and West Flamingo had to let its 700 students go home early yesterday, after the building’s air conditioning system went on the blink. Maintenance workers were unable to fix the problem. With today’s high expected to reach 100 degrees, the school district will move Diskin’s students to nearby Decker Elementary until the air conditioning is fixed. It’s not yet known when classes will resume at Diskin.
