Prince George’s County Public Schools is responding to the boil alert issued for several county areas. According to PGCPS:
All impacted schools will receive bottled water to meet the needs of the students and staff in each building.
There will be no interruptions or changes to meal services as most food items are oven prepared. Impacted school cafeterias are boiling water for use of hand washing and all cleaning needs.
Parents will be notified by robo-call of any changes to bus stops and routes, particularly around the Tanglewood Drive area where WSSC is conducting repair.
