Due to on-going repairs of a gas leak in vicinity of the school, the VERNON HILL SCHOOL will be CLOSED on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2015.
The school was evacuated yesterday due to this leak (which does not affect the school's gas supply). Gas fumes are collecting into the school through an underground conduit; the situation is continuing to be monitored, but classes cannot meet there today.
5 am update from Mr. Allen: As of 5am, the repairs of the gas leak near the school were still underway. We understand that once the gas leaks are found, it will require several hours for repair. Therefore, with all abundance of caution, it has been decided that the Vernon Hill School will be closed today.
