  1. Once this is looked into I’ll bet it was caused by inadequate repairs by the maintenance department.

    3. @Anonymous 8:32,

      It is the responsibility of this nation, since we have the most wealth and natural resources in the world, to make sure that children do not go hungry.

      The spill was human error. It did not spring up from the ground.

      I have to agree with you it is this nations responsibility to make sure not only children but should be for all. Way to many people go hungry now and that shouldn't be in this country. Its amazing how the blame is already being said. Lets find out than beat up the person who is responsible if it was even someones fault.

  2. oh My! Oh MY! those 1st graders coming from Eastford Rd school (planned to be housed in this part of the school) might have to stay in the spacious and roomy Eastford Rd School after all.

    To the first poster making the bet - IT IS A SAFE BET!
    Many repairs and leaks reported just this year alone but have been on going for many years. Classrooms have been moved out before because of the fumes.

    I can't wait to here the building committee's response to this one - might start with repairs have all been done on schedule and underbudget. Go Figure!

    1. Maybe it's because the maintenance department hired stoned 20-somethings to do the work? Just saying.

  3. Are you sure that it's oil? Let the Police Chief analyze the substance and it nine months, he'll provide inconclusive results, and then let it settle down and die, while covering that up.

    1. I'm sure the police chief himself will collect a sample and bring it to his underground bat-cave and have his butler bring the chemistry set online.

      Don't be such a dick.

    Accidents happen, you people god forbid ever have an oil leak you might jump off the face of the earth . Thats why all you people pay insurance on your homes just like town insures the buildings for things like this. It will get cleaned up and paid for by insurance so dont get your undies all tighten in a bunch you could hurt yourselfs.Oh and do the other taxpayers a favor and GROW UP !!

    Ah insurance lets not forget when you use your insurance they raise the premium. When premiums go up, like with the tornado, tax rates go up.

    Incurring what was probably an avoidable event because of being penny wise and dollar foolish - Priceless
