Contractors flushed a 6-inch water line as part of ongoing repairs at East Brunswick High School. Superintendent Victor Valeski says if all goes well, students may be able to return to the school on Monday.
Around 2,000 students have been learning remotely since the pipe burst last Wednesday. Officials are waiting for test results.
“After that, they’ll take some bacterial testing and some water quality testing," Valeski said. "Got to get that to the lab, and then we’ll do air quality testing of the building itself."

Valeski says the only issue that would prevent the students from returning Monday would be adverse test results regarding the water and the air inside the school or the lab not returning the test results by Monday.
SAT tests scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 4 were relocated to the Churchill Junior High School on Norton Road in East Brunswick.
Room assignments for the test will be posted outside the building on the windows of the front entrance.
