Broken Sprinkler Head Temporarily Floods D-B Science Pod

January 29, 2015

KINGSPORT — An outside contractor working at Dobyns-Bennett High School Thursday afternoon accidentally knocked off a sprinkler head with a ladder, school system Chief Information Officer Andy True said Thursday evening.


True said that because of that, shortly before 4:30 p.m. water temporarily flooded part of the science pod and the hallway from the cafeteria to the pod but that Kingsport City Schools maintenance workers were quickly cleaning up and drying up the area.


"I would not expect a schedule change," True said.


Parents of D-B students were to receive notification of the incident from the school system Thursday night, he said. Because of the hallway slope away from the pod, he said the water did not stand much and mostly flowed down the hall and went out of the building.
