From the New Rochelle School District:
Columbus Elementary School in New Rochelle is closed today due to a malfunctioning boiler that is emitting a smell of oil throughout the building.
In consultation with the New Rochelle Fire Department, a decision was made not to open the building to students.
The school is prepared to begin on a two hour delay at 10:30 a.m. and will hold classes at the Boys & Girls Club behind the Columbus building.
District plumbers and county environmental experts are currently assessing the situation and we will update parents as we learn any new information.
