CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The principal of James River High School sent an email to parents Monday afternoon following concerns about water at the school.
Some students took to social media to report “cloudy” water coming from the fountains.
In the email, James River High School Principal Jennifer Coleman said she wanted to update parents regarding the “social media chatter.”
“Yesterday afternoon, it was reported that the water coming from fountains was cloudy, likely due to construction in the area that has impacted water lines. We immediately notified the school division’s Facilities Department, which began flushing our lines. This work has continued today, with half of the fountains available for use again,” Coleman wrote.
The kitchen and bathrooms were not impacted, and breakfast and lunch were available as scheduled, according to Coleman’s email.
“We appreciate our Facilities Department’s quick response, and the flexibility our students have shown during this brief disruption,” Coleman added.
