Peck Place School in Orange to remain closed rest of the year

ORANGE - Officials in Orange say Peck Place Elementary school will remain closed for the rest of the school year.

The school was shut down earlier this month when a pipe burst.

When crews cleaned up the flooding, they found asbestos in the glue used in the tile floors.

First Selectman Jim Zeoli says students will have classes at Yale's West Campus for the remainder of the school year.
