    Brilliant!!!

    Got in this morning and no water supply. Severn-Trent said it would be at least 4 hours so we set the "snowline" going. Water came back on at around 8am so we have no kids and water to make tea and flush the loos.

    It's a bit lame closing schools when there's no water isn't it? I mean what is the school scared of exactly? A kid taking a crap and leaving a blocked up bog? :?

    It's a health and safety thing - not only is the dump likely to happen. but in effect it means that people wouldnt be able to wash thier hands etc - canteen couldnt open because food couldnt be prepared etc.

    Theres a massive risk of the spread of infection.

    I'd never call our site manager a janitor - there is a lot more to it than most people think!!

    Valid point though, just not applicable to this guy.

    Re: Brilliant!!!

    We did once get a phone call to the support desk asking if we knew how to turn the radiators off in one of the classrooms......I asked her if she was free that evening as I needed someone to help me wallpaper my hallway. I think she got the message....

    Re: Brilliant!!!

    This school has closed for one day since it opened 40 years ago and that was due to 4ft of snow blocking the main roads back in the 80s. It's been open even when there's been no water, heating, power etc. I've no idea how they get away with it but they are never challenged.
