A pipe ruptured in the Fort Mill High School gym over the weekend.
Officials at the school say that maintenance personnel discovered Saturday’s burst.
Water damage on the gym’s main and secondary floors.
Joe Burke, Fort Mill School District’s Public Information Officer told our partners on WRHI Radio that the district was looking at other ways to allow students to participate in sports such as wrestling which were supposed to start this week.
We are now in the process of setting up alternate sites for practices and games for all sports who use our gymnasiums. This is done in several different ways. Some of this will be housed in our existing school buildings, but we are also looking into other venues. Already, we’ve seen great progress. We hope to announce the new venues for these events in the very near future. Burke says that the impact on school will last a while.
Burke states that the cost of repair and damages is yet to be determined.
The FMSD Statement
Fort Mill High School was flooded over the weekend by a ruptured water pipe. This caused extensive damage to both the main gym and the auxiliary gymnasium floors. The district’s staff worked fast to get rid of the water so that school could continue as usual this week. Unfortunately, the damaged gym floor rendered it unusable by classes or fall sports. The district and school administrators worked together to find alternative locations for sporting events and practices. As of now, there have been no cancellations to scheduled sporting events. We believe that we can accommodate practice and matches or games by using other district facilities as well as outside venues. We have already started the process of repairing damaged areas and hope to finish this as soon as possible.”
