Earlier this morning contractors working on the construction site across the street from Farnsworth Middle School broke a water main, causing the water department to shut off the water supply to Farnsworth Middle School.
Because the school will not have water, FMS will be closed for the day. Buses will be returning students to their pick-up points. Parents and guardians who have already dropped students off at school should pick up their children as soon as possible. Building staff will remain at FMS until all students have been picked up.
We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
Update: all after school and evening activities scheduled to place this evening at FMS are canceled.
