Tonight’s Fire at Thoreau

June 28, 2021

Dear Families:

As you may have heard, earlier this evening there was a fire at Thoreau.  The electrical fire was located in the attic over the single story older part of the building.  The sprinklers doused and contained the fire as designed.  We already have a service company on site to begin the fire and water clean up and to cover the exposed portion of the roof.  We expect that the summer will allow us enough time to occupy these classrooms by the start of school.

We are very appreciative of the response of the Concord Fire Department along with the Concord Police Department and the multiple local communities whose fire departments responded to assist given the extreme heat.

I will provide more updates as we have them over the coming days.
