All Steel Valley schools will be open Monday following alarm system repairs

All schools within the Steel Valley School District in Munhall will be open on Monday.

The district posted on its website Saturday that repairs to the high school and middle school emergency fire alarm system had been completed, the system had been fully tested, and the Munhall Fire Chief had approved normal use of the building.

The district cancelled classes at the high school, middle school and Steel Center Friday, and parent-teacher conferences scheduled for Thursday, due to problems with the emergency system at the high school and middle school. Park Elementary and Barrett Elementary schools weren’t affected.

In a Friday letter to district families, Superintendent Edward Wehrer said parent-teacher conferences were expected to be rescheduled for next week, but the date of the conferences would be dependent on the success of the repairs.

The Saturday statement on the district’s website didn’t say when those conferences might be held.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
