Harsh winter leads to nearly $40K in repairs for FWCS

Shawnee Middle School and North Side High School were among the locations that needed repairs.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)  The long stretch of subzero temperatures in January froze pipes and heating coils in several Fort Wayne Community Schools (FWCS) facilities, including North Side High School, Shawnee Middle School, and the Grile Administration Building.

Burst pipes caused more damage in some locations but school officials said the problems, for the most part, didn’t interrupt classes.

“Because the weather was so bad, students weren’t coming into the buildings,” said FWCS Public Information Officer Krista Stockman.  “So we had these issues happen and we had to make the repairs, but it didn’t really affect the classrooms because students weren’t in school.”
