MAPLE RIDGE — North Dundas District High School remains shut to staff and students today — the third consecutive day of closure in the aftermath of an electrical fire on Monday night.
The building has been without power since then. Work is underway to repair the school’s electrical system.
“There was a fire in the electrical panel around 10 p.m. on Monday night,” confirmed April Scott-Clarke, Interim Manager of Communications at the Upper Canada District School Board. “Custodians were on site when the fire alarm went off. The fire department did respond and put the fire out with a fire extinguisher. Our facilities department has been working to get it repaired and inspected so that power can be restored to the school and opened for students and staff.”
