Repairs Made at WMS, Regular School Day to Resume Monday


As of Friday evening, repairs have been made to the Waldron Middle School and the administration announced that the normal school day will resume on Monday.

On Saturday, a main transformer caught fire at the WMS and disrupted the power. Administrators dismissed school on Monday to formulate a plan of action. Students were divided between two area churches, the U of A Rich Mountain and the high school.

Workers with the electric company worked diligently to restore power. The students and staff adapted well to the forced changes. The community and officers with the Waldron Police Department were committed to the students safety and accommodation. WMS expressed their gratitude “to everyone that jumped at opportunity to help.” Additionally, the district announced that students will return to a normal school day on Monday, January 14.

The school concluded their day with a Geography Bee. Congratulations to the finalist and Champion for the second year in a row, Matthew Brigance.
