December 10, 2017 News Extra

BUTLER TWP — The Butler School Board voted unanimously Monday night to adjust the school calendar — and reopen Summit Township Elementary School on Jan. 3.

To move from Broad Street Elementary School to Summit, the Summit pupils will take a field trip on Dec. 21 to the Intermediate High School. Dec. 22 and Jan. 2 will be school holidays for Summit students and they will be in class on Jan. 22 and Feb. 16, when the rest of the district has scheduled in-service days.

Summit Township Elementary School has been closed since January as officials have taken steps to correct issues with the building's water system. A new public water line was installed and connected in August and water fixtures in the school were recently replaced.
