A flood caused by a “water fountain coming off the wall” early Wednesday morning at Dobbs Ferry High School has sent students home early, Assistant Superintendent Sylvia Fassler-Wallach confirmed to Patch.com

“A water fountain came off the wall before school started, which caused water damage to five classrooms, forcing us to close the school for the rest of the day,” Fassler-Wallach said. “The classrooms will be relocated and school will be back in session Thursday.”

Students were initially gathered in the cafeteria upon arrival, but were ultimately sent home before 9 a.m., Fassler-Wallach said. It is expected that the damaged classrooms, located on the second and third floors, will be immediately repaired.

“The classrooms should be repaired in 10 days to two weeks,” Fassler-Wallach said.

Thank you for this, it really helped me. I've been looking into building a stone water fountain. I think it would look beautiful in my backyard. <a href='http://www.rosiesuniquegifts.com/default.asp?dept_id=30030' > http://www.rosiesuniquegifts.com/default.asp?dept_id=30030 </a>
