Chilly Hermiston School Wing
HERMISTON, Ore. (AP) — The boiler that supplied heat for a wing of a Hermiston elementary school has failed. So students are studying with a little more clothing in rooms warmed by electric space heaters. An 8-year-old third-grader at Rocky Heights Elementary, Peyton Herman, told the East Oregonian the students are studying with their jackets and gloves on. The boiler developed a crack at the beginning of the year. A $60,000 replacement will take three to four weeks to arrive.
