Wednesday night there was a flood in the basement at Hale Cook due to a broken pipe. Thankfully it was contained in the basement and did not affect classrooms or hallways. Clean up efforts are well underway. It will take several days, but will be completed in time for school to start on August 10. If you need office assistance, the secretary, Ms. Canady will be working at Hartman Elementary, located at 8111 Oak St.
