East Goshen Elementary To Open Monday

Repairs have been made to burst pipes that kept children from school on Friday.

After some pipe problems lead to a closing on Friday, West Chester Area School District superintendent Jim Scanlon has said that East Goshen Elementary School will be open on Monday.

"The problem has been corrected," he said in a statement to parents.

Cold temperatures on Thursday and Friday lead to pipes freezing and bursting at the area elementary school, leaving roughly half of the school's rooms without heat, according to a story from the Daily Local.

The work of replacing the pipes involved emergency orders, moving of classroom materials and, in some cases, rebuilding shelves in each affected room.

"As of 10 a.m. Saturday, all systems are working and there is heat in every room," he said. "Two rooms still require some additional work and students will be relocated to another part of the building on Monday."

All repairs are expected to be finished by Wednesday.
