Students are now back at Kendrick High School after maintenance workers repaired water overflow caused by a frozen pipe.

Due to this, there was not any heat in the building and toilets could not be flushed.

According to a press release, a rusty main water line caused loss of pressure and water in the boiler room. A new pipe piece was installed to fix this problem.

During the initial leak, water sprayed and affected the electrical panel in the boiler room that heats the building. This must be fixed before heat is restored to the school. However, the indoor temperature is judged by officials to be comfortable enough to continue classroom and student activity.

Ninth and tenth grade students were moved to the East Columbus gym as 11th and 12th grade students were moved to the Georgetown gym. Some parents checked their children out of school after the relocation.
