Water Main Break

By: Madison Welsted/Content Editor

On Thursday, November 14th, Blue Ridge encountered a problem. Since it was the day scheduled for parent-teacher conferences, Mrs. Shauna Williams was at the school later than usual. When her husband delivered her dinner, however, he discovered that something was wrong. He pointed out that the floor was actually soaked. So, superintendent Mr. Matthew Button and others gathered quickly to get to the root of the issue. That’s when Blue Ridge discovered that there was a water main break, located behind the wall in Williams’s office. Parents were notified, and the school was closed on Friday, the following school day.

Luckily, Williams was the only one whose room was affected by the water main break. Since her office was damaged, it is in the process of being repaired. Her temporary office is right outside the door of her old one, as pictured above.

Her old office is temporarily in this condition:

There is currently a boil advisory effective until Wednesday, November 20th at the school. There is no need to worry though, as the problem has been addressed. Soon, the water situation at Blue Ridge will be back to normal!
