    High School Dismissed After Roof Leaked

    Berlin High School has dismissed students for the day because of flooding at the high school.

    Berlin High School dismissed students for the day after the roof leaked and some ceiling tiles came down, according to the Berlin Public School superintendent’s office.

    Berlin received more than five inches of rain during the storm on Sunday and Supt. David Erwin said the water is affecting the old section of the high school, which has not been renovated yet.

    Water pooled on the roof, leaked in and brought down some ceiling tiles, he said.

    The first bell rings at 7:25 a.m. and school officials decided within five minutes to dismiss for the day.

    Crews have spent the morning cleaning up the water and resolved the issue, but school officials decided to dismiss students for the day.

    The senior class was the only class not dismissed because they are on an outing, rather than in school.

    School officials believe classes will resume on Tuesday, but a decision will be made later. Parents will be notified by 5 a.m. on Tuesday.
