Due to flooding, Chamisa k-3 classes are cancelled, Monday and Tuesday. District maintenance staff are working on the situation and district officials are uncertain when they will be able to resume classes.
According to Chamisa Elementary School Principal Debbie Smith, the flooding was caused by a combination of leaf debris, this weekend's thaw and frozen drainage pipes.
The school is currently working on plans to resume classes Wednesday, accomodating students by closing off one class room at a time for repairs.
In announcing the class cancellation for Tuesday, a message from Smith said, "Already today, we have toured the school with the district administration and formalized a plan to make repairs to these classrooms. We have also asked our maintenance crew to check the electrical and mechanical systems for possible water damage. We are working with a company named Williamson Restoration for advice for the best way to repair classrooms damaged by water. In addition, we are in contact with our insurance carrier to make sure that the classroom environment will be safe from possible mold contamination due to damaged carpet, sheet rock or ceiling tile. Because of the extent of damage, we are not able to make repairs to these classrooms in time for school tomorrow."
