SOUTH ORANGE, NJ - An email from the South Orange Maplewood School district was sent at approximately 4:30 p.m. informing the community that South Orange Middle School (SOMS) will be closed on Monday, March 28, due to a water main break.
The email stated that "we expect that school will be open on Tuesday, but will advise you if this changes."
A second email was sent from the school district at approximately 7:15 p.m. stating that "we have received questions about 8th grade geometry and wanted to clarify that geometry classes will not meet for SOMS students, although all other CHS classes will proceed as usual."
All other South Orange Maplewood School District schools will remain open as originally scheduled on Monday.
South Orange Middle School was also closed due to a water main break earlier this year on January 8.
