During a routine check of all buildings today in preparation for the first day of school, members of the IWCS Maintenance Department discovered that the cooling tower for Westside Elementary's air conditioning system had failed sometime late Sunday/early Monday. We are working with our vendor to find a replacement part, if available, and if not, to make repairs to the part. Therefore, we are having to cancel school tomorrow for Westside Elementary. We will know more about the status of the system by Tuesday afternoon and will update you as soon as we have a decision about school on Wednesday.
Please monitor your devices for updates through our Connect 5 system. You can also find information on our website, www.iwcs.k12.va.us, as well as on our social media accounts.
Once again, Westside Elementary School will be closed for all students and staff on Tuesday, September 4.
