Emergency facilities work will be done at Washington Elementary School before the 2007-08 school year begins to repair a leaking, corroded pipe in the gymnasium. The condition of the pipe has made the gymnasium off limits. For safety reasons, no activities will be held in the gym until the pipe is repaired. Registration took place as planned Friday, Aug. 3, using the lower-level hallway near the office. Monday's registration, from noon to 7 p.m. will also take place in the hallway. Title I Summer School scheduled for next week will take place, but students and teachers will not be able to use the gymnasium.
