The Huron School District will be closed Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week while the township awaits water tests following a massive water main break that occurred Sunday.
Donovan Rowe, superintendent of Huron School District, sent a communication Monday afternoon explaining the situation.
Rowe said he hopes the situation will be resolved so that classes can resume on Friday.
“I have been in contact with the Huron Township Department of Public Safety today, and we are working closely with the Huron Township DPW. Officials have notified the schools that they cannot guarantee that water is safe to drink or use for hand washing at this time. We are being told that definitive test results will not be available until late on Thursday, and the boil water advisory will be in effect until the results are in. Student and staff safety is our primary concern, and this situation poses a potential risk to our drinking and washing water in the district. Unfortunately, this means that the Huron School District will be closed on Tuesday, October 12, Wednesday, October 13, and Thursday, October 14, 2021. We hope that we will be able to safely return to regular operation on Friday. As always, we will communicate any updates or changes if and when we are made aware. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Be safe out there,” Rowe said.
