Fairfield Ludlowe High Schools roof damaged by winds

During the early morning hours of Jan. 31, a section of the Fairfield Ludlowe High School roof rubber membrane was dislodged due to high winds and rain. The affected area contains approximately 15 classrooms on the second floor of Warner House.

The extent of this damage was not known until the buses had already started their morning runs, so students in the affected classrooms were relocated to the gymnasium and all other classes ran as scheduled. School was dismissed for all students at 10:15 a.m.

Immediately after the discovery of the extent of the damage, the school district’s roof contractor was on the scene to assess the damage. Members of the school district’s maintenance crews worked to begin the mitigation process. The fire department, building department and other mechanical contractors were on the scene to assess the damage and provide assistance. The town’s insurance carrier was also notified and a representative from that firm is on site.

The school district, in conjunction with its contractors and insurance carrier, is developing a mitigation and restoration plan for the school. The school district’s central office team, along with the Fairfield Ludlowe High School administration, is developing a plan for the relocation of classes in the affected areas when the school is cleared to reopen.

Other sections of the building not affected by this damage remain open. The “Rebound for Newtown” fund-raiser scheduled for this evening is still on.

A decision about whether or not Fairfield Ludlowe High School will open on Friday will be made as soon as possible and communicated through our normal channels.
