Update on school closing

LEWISTOWN – Mifflin County School District Superintendent James Estep said this morning some key district personnel, along with the lead architect and construction management, will hold a meeting this afternoon to discuss the closure of the Indian Valley Elementary and Intermediate School.

“Due to an apparent change of mind and change in direction on the part of the Commonwealth Code Inspector ,the district was forced to close the building today … the district is working with other representatives to get to a determination as to what is needed from their perspective to reopen the building,” Estep said.

Any further updates will be posted on the Sentinel’s website or printed in the Saturday edition of the Sentinel.
