The timeline on my story is inaccurate. The computer I was using had the wrong time stamp. I should be getting another computer for work today! Again, I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
The Custodian at Peck Place found the leak at the school at 7 a.m., McMullin was notified at 7:15 a.m. and sent the notice out.
[At around 4:30 a.m.] At 7:45 a.m. Supt. Lynn McMullin sent out this notice: (altered to reflect the late posting)
Peck Place update and CHANGE. The kids and staff are in route to MLT, 350 School House Rd.
The kids are fine and in good spirits. They will be dismissed at 10:30 by their buses … or may be picked up at the school.
Because of social media, expect security for dismissal and please have patience if picking up.
The 21st Century Program will be held today at Mary L. Tracy School for those Peck Place students who attend the after-school program on Monday afternoons. The program will be in session until 6:00 p.m. Lunch/snack will be served.
Updated 1:05 p.m. :
In the true spirit of a community reaching out and helping others in times of trouble, Peck students will attend school tomorrow at either Race Brook or Turkey Hill.
Peck students will be divided between the two schools by their bus route, with as even a distribution as possible. They will join classes at Turkey Hill and Race Brook and be welcomed by those teachers and students.
Aides and paraprofessionals will go with them. Careful plans are being made for our Special-Ed students and our students with allergies and health issues. We know it is going to be cold outside tomorrow, but we are hoping as many students as possible will take the bus to alleviate possible congestion and confusion at the student drop-off areas.
For Peck parents, more detailed information is coming.
EDITOR’S NOTE: As you know my laptop crashed and burned on Christmas Day and I did not have one next to my bed as usual. I had gone to bed at 4 a.m. and missed the initial e-mail and update. I dropped the ball this time. For this I am sorry.
