Water Update for HS, MS, & IS - March 7, 2017
Along with a sizable number of households in the Village we did not have water pressure this morning at the Intermediate, Middle and High School. This was due to a major water main break. The Village repaired the line, but lost some pressure for a period of time. The Village Utilities Department does not believe that there was any contamination, but at 8:22 a.m. they issued a boil advisory for the entire Village. The advisory recommended any water used for human consumption be boiled for one minute. To address this advisory we are covering the drinking fountains in the Intermediate, Middle, and High Schools and providing bottled water for the students and staff. We are directing our kitchen staff to boil all water used for the preparation of food. We will provide bottled water at the schools, but suggest parents send a bottle of water to school with students to help alleviate the overall need. We have full water pressure at the buildings so there is no issue with water for hand washing or toilet flushing. We anticipate receiving communication on the boil advisory from the Village tomorrow afternoon and we will subsequently provide an update to parents and staff by the end of the day tomorrow.
