Schools Superintendent Colleen Palmer said the water in the water system is discolored and losing pressure.
As a result, restrooms in some of the schools aren’t operational and the cafeterias aren’t able to serve meals. “We don’t know what the problem is. We don’t know the root cause,” Dr. Palmer said.
She said water officials and the Westport Weston Health Department have been contacted and the water problem is being investigated.
While the schools are not serving lunches, Dr. Palmer said food supplies that do not require kitchen preparation are being served to students. “Everyone is working together to get the students out as quickly as possible and get them home safely,” Dr. Palmer said.
Weston High School and Weston Middle School students were dismissed at 11:55 a.m. Weston Intermediate School and Hurlbutt Elementary School students are being dismissed at 12:40 p.m.
