I went to a bizarre elementary school where the hallways were all outdoors.
Instead of attending classes in a giant building with indoor hallways, our school was made up of classrooms in individual buildings that were connected by covered walkways that would at least shelter us from the rain whenever there were extreme rainstorms outside.
Even if the s in the school had been optimal, this school design is being fazed out as an attempt at school shooting prevention. The concern is being able to thwart a threat when a woman could sneak onto campus in numerous dozen weird locations & clean out numerous classrooms before being detected by campus police. After there was a national school shooting in a similar campus, our state moved forward with rebuilding the affected schools. However, I l earned that our old elementary school had already been slated for reconstruction because of mold that was found in their central heating, cooling, & ventilation systems. The school is in a naturally humid environment with lots of heat, which meant the air conditioners were running frequently. Since the air conditioning system systems were shut off legitimately at night, that allowed the mold to grow inside the ductwork & air handlers. I’m blissful that new students at our former elementary school can finally benefit from cleaner air & safer hallways. I can’t imagine what sort of an effect all of that mold exposure has on a person, especially a mentor or school official. They were laboring for hours at a time in their offices without any split from wherever they were situated with their workstations. At least the students got fresh air from time to time.
