Bro­ken wa­ter pipe leads to Car­di­nal O’Hara clo­sure to­day

The Buffalo News - - LOCAL NEWS -

Car­di­nal O’Hara High School in the Town of Ton­awanda will be closed to­day due to a wa­ter pipe that burst and flooded part of the school build­ing.

The leak on the sec­ond floor was dis­cov­ered Sun­day morn­ing, prior to the start of the school’s weekly bingo game.

High school of­fi­cials hired a com­pany to clean up the wa­ter, which flowed down walls and pri­mar­ily caused dam­age on the first floor in a por­tion of the build­ing, said the school’s prin­ci­pal, Mary Holz­er­land.

“Mostly it was in of­fices, which was I guess for­tu­nate,” she said.

Holz­er­land said she ex­pected the high school of about 280 stu­dents to be open again as usual Tues­day.
