SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. -

A heating problem in is forcing a local high school to dismiss early.

Sullivan East High School maintenance crews thought they would be able to fix the heat because schools were on a delay, but the heat was not fixed in time.

Students were dismissed at 10:30 because they had to get buses back to the school.

The heat issue was caused by a problem with the control system of the boilers. Some pipes are still frozen.
