Mary Richards, KSL NewsradioThe warmer temperatures are making it harder for some kids to focus in school, especially during this test taking time.

Roosevelt Elementary doesn't have air conditioning in all the classrooms, but it's coming soon from the old Granite District building. Principal Karen Robison says it should be in the school within the next week.

Robinson says, for now, they've been doing as much CRT testing as possible in an air conditioned computer lab. She says, "When it's hot, it's hard to focus. We have to do everything we can to keep school going, and classrooms operating as normal."

Robinson says parents can help kids focus by keeping the same routine at home until school is out.

In the meantime, water bottles and spray bottles are ready in case it gets any hotter this spring.
