To: Parents/Guardians of WRS

From: Jay Slenker, Principal
     I first want to apologize for having to close school today, December 6, due to a boiler issue.  We have been addressing this particular problem since the heating season began.  We brought in two different vendors to help us and they both identified the issue as sludge in our oil tank.   We took appropriate action but those clearly have not been enough to resolve the issue. 
    Today we took the opportunity to bring in an underground oil tank company and they have made recommendations for us to take.  I have given them approval to do the work and they will be here this Monday, December 9th to start the repairs. On Monday, folks will notice fencing by our entrance has been placed to keep students away from the work.  This will take a few days to complete but school can be open while they are here and the heat will be on. 
    I recognize as a parent that canceling schools causes hardships and disrupts life.  I appreciate everyone’s understanding.  We do have heat on in the building and will have sports practice and Rec programs as scheduled today and over the weekend. We will be open for school on Monday.  Thank you again. -Jay
