Teachers, students and secretaries have had to keep their jackets on – both outside and inside.

The temperature is supposed to be 19 degrees, but for the last two days Grydemoseskolen in Espergærde has been plagued by even colder rooms.

According to reports, part of the buildings at the primary school were completely down and hit 14-16 degrees on Monday morning.

It is not known why the problem occurred, but it was believed to have been resolved by Monday.

However, the temperature was even colder on Tuesday morning. Here it was in the neighboring building, which houses the school’s two 6th classes.

“Here the temperature was down to 12 degrees. We completed the first module, and then the students were sent home,’ says Andreas Elkjær, principal at Grydemose School.

They tried to move the students to warm surroundings, but had to give up due to the circumstances.

For the sake of the students and staff, Andreas Elkjær hopes that problems will be resolved on Wednesday morning. He says that it had otherwise been painless to turn the temperature down to 19 degrees.

“It has gone relatively well, also because the weather has been so mild. But we could feel that the last few days have been cold, when the temperature has dropped 10-12 degrees. And then the vulnerability to the cold also increases”, says Andreas Elkjær.

Grydemose School is not the only primary school that has had to send students home.

At the Carl Nielsen school in Årslev, the students were also sent home on Monday morning because the temperature was down to 14 degrees. It writes TV 2 Funen.

The oldest pupils were sent home for online teaching, where parents of the youngest and intermediate children were sent an email about picking up the children, even though the school was not closed.

The standard temperature has previously been higher than 19 degrees, but as a result of the energy crisis, several schools and other institutions have had to turn down the thermostat.
