Students of North Grenville District High School had the day off last Friday, November 10, when flooding caused the school to be temporarily closed.
Principal Kris Wiley confirmed in an email sent to parents that flooding caused by a plumbing leak required school staff to call in a plumber. It’s unclear whether the flooding occurred in an area of the school regularly used by students and staff, or if it was in a basement or crawlspace area, or a building systems room.
Regardless of which area of the school was flooded, the necessary repair work meant that the water to the building needed to be shut off, rendering the building temporarily unusable without access to washroom facilities and drinking water.
It seems that some lucky students got a long weekend that they never bargained for!
