Days after a new school year began for DeKalb County students, several classrooms at one high school lost air-conditioning Thursday, officials said.

Eight classrooms and the gym at Druid Hills High School were without AC, the DeKalb County School District said in a statement to Channel 2 Action News.

As temperatures crept into the low 90s Thursday afternoon, portable air conditioning units were bought to the school while repairs to the AC system are being completed, the district said. Officials did not say when the fixes could be finished.

Students at Druid Hills went back to school Monday. Located near Emory University, the school has about 1,300 students enrolled.
