ORANGE - School officials in Orange said today that Peck Place School will move its classes to the Yale New Haven West Campus on Marsh Hill as soon as possible.
The announcement comes after the elementary school had been closed all week because of burst pipes.
Officials say they had plans to get students back into the school by the end of the week, but couldn't when asbestos was detected in the glue that keeps some of the school’s tiles intact.
