Put a MERV 13 or higher filter on the back of your fans in your classroom

Most of our classrooms don’t even have windows. Oh, and the emergency lights don’t work, either, which makes blackouts fun. 🔦 But last year they did get the AC to work nicely in my part of the building and they upgraded the filters. Progress!

We have no windows that open in our classrooms. We have also been informed that individual room air purifiers and filtration units can not be used in order to keep energy costs down.

With temps here over 100 we definitely aren’t opening windows. Also, our thermostats are controlled by the district which means the classrooms are hot and the office is cool.

That’s horrible! My district makes sure our rooms are comfortable. I am thinking of asking them to turn it down a bit more so I can wear a light weight cardigan. My last room was that cold.

It is pitiful the conditions we are expected to work in. Thank goodness for teachers’ unions or we would be left to the wolves.

Our classroom windows don’t open. :(

Our windows don’t open and we are not allowed to bring in air purifiers. We do have central ac.

Would love to read it, but can’t open it for free. Thanks for sharing.

Confused if parents want schools to reopen or not? I read so many posts here about how difficult it is to work full time and manage kids’ at-home schooling (I can’t even imagine!) so would assume that means parents want to reopen, but at the same time keep seeing a ton of backlash from parents in states who are pushing to reopen due to safety reasons. What’s the general consensus?
