Whittier closed another week due to burst pipes

Whittier Elementary School will remain closed through Feb. 26 and students will continue with remote learning.

The closure is “due to complications with the frost damage to the plumbing and pipes, as well as extensive complications with the boiler and heating systems,” according to a release from Great Falls Public Schools. “GFPS maintenance crews continue to work diligently on the repairs.”
