Superintendent of Schools Elliott Landon told a Board of Education meeting tonight that school officials were alerted to the problem by a motion detector that went off at about 2 a.m. today. He said water froze and burst a sprinkler pipe.

“There was extensive damage to one major wing of the building,” he said. “Extensive work was done throughout the day today beginning early this morning essentially to pull the place apart—walls, ceilings, ceiling tiles, insulation, all of which has to be moved and destroyed.”

He added :“Because there is so much work that has to be done and so many people going in and out of that building that it’s our belief that the safety and security of the kids is best served by closing again tomorrow. We’re certain we will open Wednesday. Staff will be in tomorrow preparing for Wednesday so we should be in good shape.”
