CMS Water Pipe Break Update

UPDATE: As of 10 a.m., The situation has been resolved.

At 6:20 this morning, we were notified of a water pipe break at CMS necessitating the water be shut off. A plumber arrived on site quickly. We have been notified that they should be able to repair the break by 10:30. Because this happened late in the morning and many students were on their way to school, we decided not to cancel school for the day.

Events are fast-moving but we want parents and guardians to be informed as quickly as we get information. If the break is fixed as anticipated, no further action will be necessary. If it isn’t, we will determine whether to relocate students per the CMS evacuation plan or call a half day. We have additional custodial staff on site, student and staff bathrooms are being closely monitored, hand sanitizer has been distributed to all bathrooms, science labs, the nurse’s office and the main office, and we have plenty of bottled water available for drinking. The Department of Health has been contacted, and has approved our plan. Updates will be shared as they become available.
