Water issue to keep Central High School closed Tuesday

The Detroit News

The Education Achievement Authority’s Central High School will remain closed Tuesday for a fifth straight day because of low water pressure, the district said Monday.

Robert Guttersohn, an EAA spokesman, said the school has been closed since Wednesday. The state-run district has been using robocalls to update parents about the building’s status, he said.

“The EAA is working closely with the city to resolve the matter and get students back into the building,” Guttersohn said in a statement.

“The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department is working diligently with the Great Lakes Water Authority to fully assess and resolve the water issue surrounding Central High School,” said Linda Clark, a DWSD spokeswoman. “We are managing our combined resources to ensure this matter is addressed as quickly as possible to ensure the safety and well-being of all concerned.”
