CULLODEN,W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Cabell County Schools says the district has received approval to reopen Culloden Elementary School Tuesday using an alternative water plan.
The plan has been approved by State Superintendent of Schools and the Cabell-Huntington Health Department.
The district has delivered bottled water to be used for drinking and hand-washing, and water from other safe sources for mopping, cleaning tables, etc. In addition, the district will provide additional hand sanitizer in several locations at the school.
To prepare the school for students and staff, maintenance crews have disabled water fountains, sinks, and emptied ice makers. Toilets are functioning as normal.
The school’s cooks will temporarily be located at the Milton Pre-K center to prepare food items. The food will then be packed into coolers and delivered to the school by district staff.
At the school, students will eat meals utilizing paper plates, plastic utensils, and other disposable products.
Cabell County’s Alternative Water Plan at Culloden Elementary will be in place until the “Do Not Use” water use ban is lifted by West Virginia American Water and a formal flushing process is completed.
No other Cabell County schools are affected by the “Do Not Use” water ban.
