Is MAST Academy’s Air Conditioning Curse Back? No.

School district makes repairs after weekend interruption

Coming into their second week of the 2023-2024 school year, Makos hoped that they would not have a repeat of last year: After a summer of dreading the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year, students were met with suffocating heat and wet humid floors on their first week back. 

Monday morning, students asked each other if the air conditioning curse was back. Thankfully, after last year’s unique start, Assistant Principal Mr. Semeraro, who other than working with principal Dr. Collman-Perez oversees the facility’s operations and air conditioning, made sure to quickly let Miami-Dade County Public School know that the air conditioning stopped working last Friday and that it should be repaired immediately.

“Within an hour the district deployed their personnel and now we are back and running,” Mr. Semararo said. 

Mr. Semararo assures that Makos can now be worry free about whether the school’s air conditioning will work.
