SVSD Thanks Responders Who Fixed Frozen Sprinkler, Broken Pipe

Saucon Valley School District superintendent Dr. Sandra Fellin took time to thank the commercial and emergency responders who quickly dealt with a frozen sprinkler system head and pipe break at the high school Tuesday night.

Saucon Valley School District superintendent Dr. Sandra Fellin took time to thank the commercial and emergency responders who quickly dealt with a frozen sprinkler system head and pipe break at the high school Tuesday night.

In an email, she credited Kistler O'Brien staff for performing emergency valve repair work and local responders who arrived at the school to help deal with the situation, including Dewey EMS members and volunteers from the Dewey, Southeastern and Se-Wy-Co fire companies.

Fellin also thanked district personnel for their help with the response.

"We shut the water off, had the part replaced, cleaned the area and [were] good to go [for classes on Wednesday]," Fellin wrote.

Some other local school districts weren't as fortunate.

The Bethlehem Area School District was forced to close Freedom High School Wednesday due to a burst sprinkler system pipe.

The frozen pipes were caused by an invasion of Arctic air that prompted the closure of schools throughout the region on Tuesday.

Saucon Valley schools' opening was delayed two hours on Wednesday, due to the cold.
