Water line break closes Mt. Lebanon High School for Thursday

| Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013, 4:45 p.m.

A water line break has closed Mt. Lebanon High School for Thursday, officials said.

The break occurred in an old water line beneath Horsman Drive, but appeared to be unrelated to a major renovation project at the school, said district spokeswoman Cissy Bowman. Contractors from the school construction crews will replace the pipe, she said, which was scheduled to take place later during the renovation process. Water service for the new athletic wing was unaffected, and the broken pipe did not damage any property, Bowman said.

Classes at the high school were cancelled and the high school will be closed to all students and staff Thursday, but the repairs were expected to be completed in time for all activities scheduled after 3 p.m. — including the school's Holiday Show — to continue as planned.

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.
