Water woes plague Triopia School District
Water woes were the topic of a recent board meeting of the Triopia School District. A water pipe burst near the football field, causing a loss of 300,000 gallons of water. The Concord water district, which supplies water for the district, is working with school officials on the cost. A water heater in the high school gym has not been working either; cost of repairs are being reviewed.
The district celebrated their 100th day on Jan. 28 and classrooms will begin competing in penny wars again with proceeds to benefit the Triopia Food Pantry. The high school recently took part in 'Safety Week' for the Operation Teen Safe Driver Team. Currently there are 171 students enrolled in the Jr./Sr. High and 226 in the grade school.
