Boiler problems at St. Thomas Aquinas cause students to be sent home early
Students at St. Thomas Aquinas were sent home Monday after the boiler at the school stopped working.
Parents say it's not the first time there has been trouble with the heating. Students say they often have to wear jackets in their classrooms.
According to the school's principal, the latest boiler problem was the result of maintenance crews not putting enough oil in the boiler. He said the lack of oil then caused the boiler to automatically shut down.
Although the boiler has been fixed, parents say the archdiocese and the pastor in charge are not doing enough. Parents also feel they are not being kept informed. The pastor would not comment on the matter.
