Wolf Lake without water and A/C

first_img Please enter your comment! If the elementary school shares the same water as the middle school then why is only the middle school receiving water bottles the next two days? I for one will not want my daughter drinking contaminated water. ALL children should be taken care of as precaution. It is 8:30pm and still no call assuring normal business will resumes tomorrow. Anyone keeping their child home tomorrow need to be given an excused absence. Reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Gov.
