Guam - It's only the second day of school and Southern High School students are forced to deal with the heat. According to Principal James Petitte, several classrooms are without working air conditioning units. He says one compressor went down early this week and another broke down today. He says maintenance workers and the contractor will be assessing the units.

"There are several wings that are affected - like parts of the 2000 and of the 4000 wings. Some in 1000 buildings, as well. Most of the air conditioning units here work but there are some isolated pockets of areas that don't have air condition. But they're being addressed," he ensured.

Petitte says most of the units were up during the summertime. He says he expects these units to be up and running by the end of the week.
