Community School Resumed Classes After Snowstorm And Boiler Problem

The Southern Aroostook Community School was able to enjoy a long weekend, four days and a half to be exact, because of snowstorm and standard boiler problems. Classes resumed on January 8 after the problems have been resolved and the snowstorm subsided.

Todd Le Roy, the superintendent, said that the school has two furnace boilers but district was completing the repairs being done on one of them due to a failure that occurred on January 3. On the same day, the students were sent home earlier than usual because of the problem with the boiler. The following day classes were once again suspended because of the snowstorm which lasted for two days. The students were able to enjoy a mini vacation because the typical two-day weekend transformed into over four days.

LeRoy explained that they are almost done with the repairs when the classes were suspended and two boilers were already operational before the end of the day. Due to the initial problems with one of the boilers, they were able to survive using only one of them. One of the boilers suffered from a burn failure and it will not restart but the second one is also not in its mint condition because it cannot deliver the heating required by the school to make sure that the students and staffs are comfortably warm.

The students were sent home on January 3 at exactly 11:15 in the morning because one operational boiler was not able to give off heat for the whole building considering that the particular day was extremely cold.

The superintendent explained that classes were supposed to resume the following day because the technicians were able to solve the working boiler’s problem by raising the water’s temperature which provided enough heat for the entire school but the storm happened.

He is not sure about the total amount of the repairs but he is confident that the costs will not affect that budget of the school.

He said that the budget has been already set to accommodate standard boiler problems and other issues that might occur inside the school premises.
