Updated: Water main break closes Grapevine High for second day in a row Tuesday
Surprise four-day weekend? It's enough to make you jump for joy and sing in unison.
If you're a student, one day of canceled classes for a water main break is lucky. Two days in a row is downright glorious. But for district officials, repairmen, and parents, it's no doubt a bit of a nightmare. On Tuesday, all classes at Grapevine High School will be canceled, including a number of indoor extra-curricular events. See the official word from the school below:
Classes at Grapevine High School have been canceled for Tuesday, Feb. 10, due to continuing repairs following a water main break under the school. Classes at all other GCISD schools, including Colleyville Heritage High School, will be in session as scheduled. All Monday and Tuesday evening activities located at the main GHS campus remain cancelled. Use of Gym 2 is doubtful is doubtful for at least the remainder of the week, and use of Gyms 3 and 4 will be limited. Soccer games scheduled for Monday evening at Mustang-Panther Stadium will continue as planned.
Clean-up and repairs are underway at Grapevine High School. Power and water still have to be restored and essential repairs must be made before students and staff can return to school. Students and staff should remain out of the building until further notice.
District officials will continue to monitor the situation. No decision has been made regarding classes for Wednesday at GHS. Thank you for your patience and understanding regarding this unforeseen inconvenience. Please watch for further updates in GCISD FastNews and on the GHS and District websites.
