Flooding Causes Chaos On First Floor

Flooding+Causes+Chaos+On+First+Floor

GROTON, Conn. – Floods on the first floor at Fitch High School left students and teachers misplaced during the first full week of school.

Following the torrential rains, five classrooms in the 1100 hallway were damaged and closed for mold removal. On the morning of September 11 about a half an inch of water was found on the ground. Due to this, many teachers and students were relocated. 

“Finding the relocated classrooms [was] the most confusing”, said Jayda Johnson, freshman at FHS. “Some days the schedule would switch and certain teachers weren’t very good at communicating.” 

The water did damage the walls, which was why we had to leave our rooms,” said Ms. Howell. “They replaced the insulation and drywall in several classrooms in two weeks.”

The construction caused several problems including having the fire alarm go off. This occurred at about 8:45 on B days for about a week.
