Boiler woes lead to early dismissal at Strough

Posted

Strough Middle School today dismissed early at about 11:15 a.m. due to boiler failures, the Rome school district said.

There was partial operation of the boilers, said school district Superintendent Peter C. Blake, and the issue was that "there is not enough boiler support to heat the building and cook food."

A pump that helps the boilers to function has failed and could not be replaced today, Blake said. He added "we are hopeful that the part can be replaced prior to Tuesday." Schools will not be in session on Monday, which is the observance of Veterans Day.
