In Danbury ... Mill Ridge Primaray School will be closed Monday after a broken water fitting flooded eight classrooms in the building during the long weekend. Joe Martino, the director of finance for the school district, said a fitting on a toilet broke during the holiday weekend in a bathroom that was located inside a classroom at the school,which includes Kindergarten through the third grade.
Because the school was closed during the holiday and no one was in the building, the leak wasn’t discovered until this morning when staff began entering the building. Eight classrooms had severe flooding due to the leak. Martino said they are bringing in large dehumidifiers and will be chemically cleaning the carpets. He added that school is expected to resume tomorrow.
