Central High School in Detroit has remained closed since last Wednesday due to ongoing water issues.

A spokesperson for the Education Achievement Authority issued the following statement about the problem this afternoon: 

“While the GWLA is working to determine the cause of the water pressure issue on the upper floors of the building, we are exploring all options to get our students back in the classroom -- including temporary relocation. We are also in conversation with the Health Department regarding plans for reentry after we determine a solution. We are communicating with parents, students and staff every day to provide them updates. We hope the issue will be solved soon to return normalcy to the lives of our students and families at Central High School.”
