ACPS has announced that Francis Hammond Middle School will be CLOSED on Tuesday, June 2, due to continuing air conditioning problems.

Hammond Middle School will be closed on Tuesday, June 2, due to air conditioning issues in certain sections of the building. Technicians were working over the weekend and throughout Monday to repair the chiller. Despite their attempts, the chiller will need to be replaced. An emergency chiller unit has been acquired and is scheduled to be installed and running by the end of the day on Tuesday. We anticipate opening school again on Wednesday, June 3, and holding SOL testing as scheduled. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

Rumor has it the ’emergency chiller’ is from another ACPS school, so they’d better hope it stays cool the next 2 weeks.

Too bad ACPS brass can’t just be honest about all of this.
