Freezing Temps Break Pipe at E.A. High School
Classes are virtual while district repairs damage

Freezing temperatures and high winds over the Christmas weekend caused a water pipe in a sink on the second floor of East Allegheny High School to rupture and cause flooding, the district announced.
According to a letter written and posted on the school district’s website by the Superintendent of Schools, Alan Johnson, the water damage was quite significant, and affected the second-floor science wing and the rooms below on the first floor and basement levels.
As a result of continued cleanup and testing to ensure the building is safe, seventh through 12th graders attending the junior-senior high school will learn remotely this week through Jan. 6.
Logan Elementary students will resume classes in person as usual.
Over the holiday break, maintenance crews, teachers, and staff members have been working to remove damaged materials and papers, Johnson said that the most significant damage was to the ceiling tiles, which had to be removed.
Dehumidifiers and other equipment have been brought in to dry out the rooms as quickly as possible in preparation for the students’ return to classes.
Johnson said that most of the IT and technology equipment was been affected, and lockers and cabinets are not damaged. However, there is a lot of work to be done to remove materials while thoroughly drying walls and floor to prevent the growth of mold and mildew, he said.
Air quality tests will be done throughout the building to confirm whether classes can resume safely.
Updates will be posted on the district’s website, Johnson said.
