SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Hundreds of students in the Twin Rivers Unified School District returned to cold classrooms on Monday.
Teachers say there were only portable heaters for warmth, leaving students to bundle up in their jackets and even cover up with blankets.
At least one of the schools is blaming the lack of heat on an October copper theft.
“That’s got to be fixed,” said California Sen. President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg. “Kids need to learn in an environment where they’re not cold.”
Steinberg says he’s reaching out to Superintendent Steven Martinez about the problem.
Martinez says the district will do everything it can to fix the issues and will provide space heaters in classrooms until the repairs can be made.
