Morehouse Parish School Board takes an emergency heat vote

Posted: Updated:

BASTROP, La. (KNOE 8 News) - The Morehouse Parish School Board took an emergency vote on Tuesday evening to begin temporary repairs on faulty pipes, to restore heat at Delta Magnet School.

There was no heat at several Morehouse Parish schools on Tuesday morning.  A computer glitch was blamed for the outage at all of the schools, except for Delta in Mer Rouge. 

Tuesday's vote by the board allows repairs to take place without bids.  The old pipes will be temporarily fixed at the school while new pipes are installed.  Heat at Delta Magnet School is expected to be restored sometime during school hours on Wednesday.

Parents are urged to bundle their children up, before sending them to school.
