CORPUS CHRISTI - Students at Haas Middle School are getting out very early for the day due to a malfunctioning air conditioning unit. Corpus Christi ISD made the announcement just a short time ago on a Facebook page.
Parents are asked to pick up their children from the campus as soon as possible.When students and administrators arrived at school at 9 a.m. they noticed the air conditioner was not working.
The principal says she contacted the school district and tried to wait it out, but the district made the decision to evacuate the campus at 11 a.m.
Officials say repairs are already underway at the campus, but may not be complete until late today.
The campus is expected to reopen tomorrow.
