Nanuet High School cancels first day of classes due to sewage problem

CLARKSTOWN Nanuet Senior High school will be closed on Wednesday the first day of classes due to an issue with the building’s main sewer pipe, according to a statement from Superintendent Kevin McCahill.

There will be no in-person or virtual classes for ninth through 12th graders in the district, and there will be no access to the building for before- or after-school activities, according to the statement posted to the district website. High school Principal Michael Mahoney said the cancellation of classes includes students attending the morning and afternoon CTEC programs at Rockland BOCES.

“We know everyone at the high school was eagerly anticipating the first day of school,” McCahill wrote. “Please know that we are working to fix the issue swiftly so that we can welcome back our high school students and staff as soon as possible.”
