WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

West Ashley High School dismissed students early Monday because of air conditioning problems.

School administrators began the dismissal process at 1:30 p.m. because of issues with the school's air conditioning units, according to Charleston County School District spokesman Andy Pruitt.

Power was restored to the school at approximately 10 a.m. Monday after an outage, but the temperature in classrooms continued to climb throughout the day.

"Out of an abundance of caution to protect occupant health, well-being, and safety, it was decided that dismissing students early would be the best course of action," a statement from CCSD read.
