Bay High goes to virtual learning after water pipe bursts on campus
Bay High students were forced to go virtual Monday after students and staff arrived at school to find a water main had burst.
Deputy superintendent Monty Noblitt said the break caused water to pond between the gym and the science building.
Crews had to turn off water to the campus to make repairs.
JEM mechanical contractors are repairing the water main now and students should be back on campus on Tuesday.
“We can’t have school if we don’t have water,” Noblitt said, adding that they are not sure what caused the pipes to burst.
He said the buildings have been there for a very long time.
Bay-Waveland is proposing a nearly $37.9 million bond issue to make improvements to aging buildings and infrastructure across the district.
Residents will vote on the bond issue on March 29.
