SSHS Gym Closed Off After Health Inspection

Other problem areas include the Science wing, a restroom in the main building, the main hallway from the main office to the cafeteria, and the front entrance to the cafeteria.

Guam – The Simon Sanchez High School gym has been cordoned off after a health inspection was conducted at the Yigo campus.

 

The Department of Health and Social Services conducted a walk-through of Sanchez earlier this month in which Sanchez received zero demerits. However, Sanchez was only given zero demerits because they closed off the problem areas. 

According to GDOE Deputy Superintendent Chris Anderson, the gym was closed off because of paint peeling from the roof. He says they’re looking to scrape the paint off sometime next month. Other areas public health is concerned about include the Science wing, a restroom in the main building, the main hallway from the main office to the cafeteria, and the front entrance to the cafeteria.

This inspection is a follow up to last year’s health inspection when Sanchez received 20 demerits for a clogged restroom stall, railing that looks as if it’s about to fall off, evidence of rodent in storage areas, and ceiling tiles that needed replacement.

Anderson says, “Because we had cordoned off the areas that were a concern for public health, we had zero demerits. However, we want the entire campus to be available for students for the next school year so GDOE is working closely with maintenance division and the school itself to ensure that those areas are addressed.”
 
Anderson thanks the Guam Home Center for donating 25 buckets of paint to help address some of the issues at Simon Sanchez High.
