We received word from a community member at 4:30 pm today that there would be no water in the town and at the school from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm tomorrow. Imagine my surprise, as the school received NO WORD about this. I understand that some businesses and townspeople got a written notice in the mail, but the school did not. We called the Acting Town Manager and insisted that the work on the water system be cancelled for tomorrow, as state law requires that I shut school down when there is no water. We would have had an emergency school closing. Luckily, the Town Manager heard my pleas and called the company to cancel the work planned for tomorrow. Thus, school is open on Wednesday and you too will have water. They are planning the work for another day, which will close the school, but at least we will have advance notice so parents can make babysitting arrangements.
There will be water tomorrow for all.....and school will be in session!
