Water main break sends Simon Sanchez and F.B. Leon Guerrero students home for the day


The Guam Department of Education sent students at Simon Sanchez High School and F.B. Leon Guerrero Middle School home for the day because a water main break left both schools without running water.

School buses were called in early to pick up students. Parents of students who drive their children to school were called to come and get them.

After-school activities at both campuses are also canceled for today only.

Both visiting and hosting students participating in the Student Exchange Day at Simon Sanchez High School will remain to complete their exchange activities.

Additionally, SSHS students participating in the field trip to the University of Guam will complete their field trip activities and should be picked up at the Yigo campus at 1:45 p.m.

Classes are scheduled to resume on Monday as scheduled.

The Guam Waterworks Authority estimates that repairs won’t be done until late Friday afternoon.
