Broken Pipe Floods Classrooms at Glacier High

By Beacon Staff

A broken water pipe in a conference room at Kalispell’s Glacier High School caused flooding in five classrooms, five offices and the special education corridor over the weekend.

Principal Callie Langohr says classes will be held Monday, but some will be held in other rooms, such as the library.

School administrators say water pouring from a broken fire suppression pipe reached a depth of 8 to 10 inches in the conference room and then flowed down the walls into administration offices.

School administrators don’t yet know the extent of the damage. The sophomores will be asked to clean out their lockers Monday so the lockers can be removed to aid in the drying of the floors and walls.

Glacier High School opened in the fall of 2007.
