Students returning to Scotlandville High on Thursday, plumbing mishap flooded campus over the weekend
BATON ROUGE – A problem with Scotlandville High’s plumbing flooded a building on campus over the weekend, forcing administrators to cancel in-person classes for most of the week.
The East Baton Rouge Parish School System announced the last-minute closure around 7 pm Sunday night. After three days of virtual learning, all students will be on campus Thursday.
A spokesperson for the school system said a toilet malfunctioned and was stuck continually flushing, causing the water to overflow.
Although students are back on campus, the school’s E Building is still closed for air quality and mold testing.
