City schools have started to release students early today as snowflakes fall in Hartford.
And at the University High School of Science and Engineering, there were no classes Monday because a broken water pipe flooded parts of the building. A custodian discovered the flooded floors when he entered the magnet school at 6 a.m., spokesman David Medina said.
“They’re working on it now,” Medina said. “They’re very confident they’ll reopen school tomorrow.”
Twenty-one Hartford schools in Tier 1 were scheduled to dismiss students at 11:15 a.m. because of the wintry weather. In the school system’s Tier 2, there are 16 schools to be dismissed at noon. The final wave of schools — 24 of them in Tier 3 — will release students at 12:45 p.m.
Parents are told which tier their child’s school belongs to, according to Medina.
