Randolph Co. schools without water ahead of planned early dismissal

RANDOLPH CO., GA (WALB) - Officials in the Randolph County School system confirmed that the middle and high schools are without water Wednesday morning.

The schools were already scheduled for a half day for parent/teacher conferences, however the water did stop working this morning.

The maintenance director for the schools said they believe the issue stems from the well that supplies the schools was struck by lightning two weeks ago.

Crews are working to fix the issue.

School officials will reach out to WALB if adjustments need to be made to the school day Thursday.

The Superintendent of Randolph County Schools, Dr. Marvin Howard, released this statement:

This morning, we discovered that our well had failed again. About a month ago, lightening struck our pump. We called and had it repaired and was told that the problem was solved.
