Students from Henry J. Winters Elementary School returned to the classroom after a month-long closure due to a heating coil malfunction that caused water damage to 23 classrooms. The school, in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, was set to reopen on Monday but stayed closed after another pipe burst over the weekend causing more water damage. Parents expressed frustration over the situation, especially considering it is a new building. School officials have been working with contractors to make repairs and have inspected all heating coils, with additional alarm systems added to prevent future issues. The cause of the heating coil failures remains under investigation.
