Lakota West back to school today after repairs made

        WEST CHESTER TOWNSHIP — School resumes today at Lakota West High School following the replacement of a boiler sensor and a waterline Monday.

        A half-inch waterline inside a coil froze and then burst Sunday night, flooding the air-handler room on two floors of the school.

        The problem wasn't discovered until Monday morning as school personnel entered the building, said Doug Lantz, Lakota's business director.

        As students arrived, they were directed to the gymnasium while crews worked under the direction of Facilities Director Jack Grady.

        “The decision was made to send students home because some parts of the building weren't getting any heat,” Mr. Lantz said. “We got the problem fixed later that morning.”

        Damage was minimal, with crews having to mop up the water and replace ceiling tiles.
