AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) - Students in Amherst looked at Thursday like a snow day, without the snow.
A slippery situation in Amherst, as the regional school district closed all their schools because of slippery floors.
A message was posted on the school's web page saying the schools were closed due to "weather-related building issues."
Amherst Regional High School Principal Mark Jackson said that Wednesday, there were 22 reports of students falling.
Jackson said the school's floors were waxed during the summer and that Wednesday’s temperatures melted that wax and made the floors very slippery.
Sam Johnston, senior at Amherst Regional High School, told 22News, “They're pretty slippery. I've seen some people slip and almost fall but not any bad injuries yet.”
“A number of people came right at me to point out how treacherous the corner of the building was. So we didn't have instances of hard falls or people who ended up in the nurses office, but there was this sense of caution that went throughout the building so we did various things to mitigate that but it was clearly an issue,” said Jackson.
Of those 22 kids that fell, no one was seriously hurt. Superintendent Maria Geryk made the decision to close the schools.
The Amherst Regional School district is made up of children from Amherst, Pelham, Leverett and Shutesbury.
No word on if the schools will re-open on Friday.
