Both Monticello and Drew Central school districts will have to schedule “snow day” make up days, to replace Wednesday on the school calendar.
Listed below are the current plans that school administrators will use to make up for the lost education day.
Drew Central Superintendent Billy Williams told MLive that Drew Central Schools will make-up their day for students and staff on Monday, February 17th, which had been scheduled for Presidents’ Day holiday.
Monticello school superintendent Bobby Harper told us that Monticello will likely make up their lost school day at the end of the school year
Drew Central Schools will return to their normal class schedule on Thursday.
Parent – teacher meetings will be held following class from 3:30 til 7:30 PM
The Monticello school district will resume normal schedule, Thursday morning.
The City of Monticello Water Department hereby lifts the boil order.
It is no longer necessary to heat the water before drinking or using it for cooking purposes. (the area that was affected was all of Spring Branch Subdivision and from that point going West down Highway 278)
The Department of Health has released the “Boil Water” Notice confirmed on 2/6/2014 9:38:21 AM by Tony Beard for the Approximately 100 customers located on Hwy 278 West from Spring Branch Subdivision to Hwy 530. This order was issued as a precautionary measure because of the possibility that contaminated water may have entered the distribution system as a result of complete loss in normal system pressure.
Bacteriological samples taken on Monday, February 10, 2014 were found to be free of bacterial contamination and a satisfactory disinfectant level has been established throughout the distribution system. The water is therefore considered “Safe” for human consumption and the “Boil Water” notice is hereby lifted.
