The HVAC updates will be paid for by Covid relief funds received earlier this year.

McCook Junior High School in McCook, Neb., is receiving nearly $1 million in HVAC upgrades. 

The McCook district is using federal Covid relief funding to pay for the updates, reports the McCook Gazette

The district received around $2.6 million in stimulus funding. Nearly $1 million has been used for a variety of eligible costs, such as a $300,000 activity bus, summer school costs, training, additional busing and substitute teachers.

Using subs became expensive last year because of the number of teachers that were absent adhering to 14-day Covid quarantine requirements.

At one point, all fifth-grade teachers were out on quarantine.

The board also is looking at allocating money for further upgrades at the junior high and renovating the high school  auditorium.
