Water Issues Cause Dellwood School Closure

January 18, 2013

[Updated] Dellwood Middle School will be closed for the remainder of today [Jan 18] due to plumbing/water issues, and parents are being contacted by the school to collect their children.

A spokesperson said: “The Ministry of Education is advising the public and parents that a decision has been made to close the Dellwood Middle School for the remainder of today due to plumbing/water problems being experienced at the school.

“The Ministry advised that parents are being contacted by the school regarding the collection of students.

“Efforts are currently underway to rectify the issue, and the Ministry takes this opportunity to thank parents and members of the public for their patience and cooperation.”

Update 5.23pm: The Ministry of Education confirmed that Dellwood will resume regular school operations on Monday [Jan 21].

Ministry officials also added that “today’s closure was unavoidable – pointing out that the school was without water upon students’ arrival this morning.”

They said that “in keeping with its health and safety procedures, there is a two-hour timeframe in which to address an issue. Unable to rectify today’s plumbing concerns within that timeframe, and having no definitive timeline as to when the plumbing would be operable, the Ministry made the decision to close the school.”

The Ministry thanked “the parents and the public for their patience and cooperation today.”
