Sewer backup forces school to cancel classes

“Students at Rosemount High School were sent home early Monday due to a sewage backup.

A message to families sent from Principal Pete Roback said students were dismissed at 10:30 a.m.

“After examining the situation with our custodial team and consulting with district leadership, we determined we could not provide a healthy learning environment for the remainder of the day,” Roback said in the letter.

The school also canceled after-school activities, “unless otherwise notified by the coach or advisor.”

School officials say they plan to resume classes Tuesday, as usual.”

Consider how many students and faculty use bathroom facilities each day and it shouldn’t come as surprise when such an issue arises. This doesn’t factor in vandalism or negligence with flushing inappropriate items down toilets too!
