Staley Elementary School in Rome won’t be welcoming students back to class as expected Thursday or Friday.
The building will be closed the rest of the week because of “maintenance concerns,” according to the district.
While students get to extend their summer vacations, all staff is asked to report to the high school, Rome Free Academy, on Thursday.
Superintendent Peter Blake sent out the following tweet Wednesday evening:
Staley Elementary will be closed due to maintenance concerns on Thursday, 9/6 and Friday, 9/7 for students. Students will return to school on Monday, 9/10. I understand that this is an inconvenience, but student and staff health, safety, and welfare are always our priority.— Peter Blake (@pblake_RomeCSD) September 5, 2018
The district has not yet elaborated on what “maintenance concerns” entail.
