Burst Pipe Closes Four Classrooms At Middle School

Mother nature 1, Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School, 0

That seemed to be the tally Tuesday, when temperatures froze an outside sprinkler head that burst about 11 a.m. and forced students out of four classrooms, the city said.

Firefighters responded to the break at 11:08 a.m., the department said. According to Mayor Robert Dolan's office, eight students were in the classrooms when the leak occurred.

Other students whose classes are held in the affected areas were moved to the cafeteria and gym, before attending a schoolwide assembly, according to the city.

Damage to the school was minimal, and the electrical, heating, and ventilation systems were not affected. A cost estimate for the repairs is pending, Dolan's office said.

Maintenance set to work immediately to address the problem.
