SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Students at a charter school in Springfield were allowed to go home early on Friday, due to a plumbing issue.
Joyce Mulvaney, spokesperson for the Springfield Water and Sewer Commission, told 22News that there was a blockage in the sewer service to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Charter School of Excellence. She says that the blockage has since been removed by water and sewer crews.
The school’s executive director, Alan Katz, told 22News that they contacted the parents of all the students at the Dorset Street school, who then arrived to pick up their children.
