The courtyard was closed on Monday, Oct. 1 through Wednesday, Oct. 3 due to the school installing a new drainage system on the side of the courtyard adjacent to the classrooms.

During an interview with Dr. J, he mentioned that because of the large quantity of rain we have encountered so far this year, the academic building has been experiencing leaks in Rooms 111 and 113.

The slope of the terrain makes runoff go towards that side of the building, therefore seeping into the classrooms.

But the drainage system will hopefully stop that issue.

The maintenance staff dug a trench along the side of the building and installed a drainage system similar to a french drain.

FRESHLY LAID, the new drain in the courtyard will help alleviate any water buildup along the academic wing.

A french drain is a trench filled with gravel, rock, or a perforated pipe that redirects surface water and groundwater away from a specific area.

BPHS even took the precautions of testing both rooms [111 and 113] for air quality and damage to be sure everything was safe for students and staff.

The courtyard is now open and the classrooms are ready to take on all weather conditions.
