UPDATE, Nov. 6, 10:20 a.m.– Hardin County Schools reports the problem has been fixed and all phones should now be working.
ORIGINAL STORY– Hardin County Director of Schools Michael Davis said Tuesday morning that the school system is having a phone issue affecting the five schools in the city of Savannah.
“It looks like a piece of equipment at the high school is down which is affecting our phone system. The phones at the central office and all five schools in the city aren’t allowing phone calls in or out at this time, and I wanted to let parents who may be trying to contact their child’s school know what is going on,” Davis said.
He said the system is being worked on, but he is not certain when it will be successfully repaired. He will notify The Courier with an update when the phones are back up and running, he said.
Including the central office on Guinn Street, the schools where the phones are inoperable are Hardin County High School, the Middle School, Parris South Elementary, East Hardin Elementary, and Northside Elementary.
The phones at Pickwick Southside and West Hardin Elementary are on a different system and are working at this time.
