Last Thursday a gas powered furnace in the Shrewsbury Christian Academy stopped working. That caused pipes in a bathroom next door to freeze which flooded the entire school with more than an inch of water.
School administrators said the school will open sometime before February 5th. Some parents said their kids are excited to return to school and see their friends.
Alan Umstead is the Chairman of the Shrewsbury Christian Academy School Board. He said he understands parents may be frustrated, but is asking for patience. “I understand, we expect questions, we expect people to critique all the decisions that were made. That’s fine, just be patient because it will open next week” said Umstead.
Umstead said that the school plans to make up the time that has been missed by adding additional days to the end of the school year.
