Sussex Middle School Water Notification Oct 3 2018 Update

October 3, 2018,  Good morning with a brief message for the parents and guardians of Sussex Middle School students. We received an update from the DPW on our middle school's drinking water. They indicated that our water tested fine and the discoloration was most likely attributable to the fire department flushing their hoses. Once again, thank you for your cooperation and have a nice day.
