Phone troubles greet callers to Bristol Warren schools on Monday

Parents and others who are attempting to contact Bristol Warren schools on Monday morning are receiving a recorded message stating that there is trouble with the phone lines. The issues, according to a school department representative, are preventing outside callers from getting through to the schools. The internal system is working, however, and there is no phone disruption among the schools and the administration offices.

Callers are instructed to leave a message with their information and which school they are attempting to reach. The voice mail message box is being checked regularly and the messages are being relayed to the appropriate recipient, according to the school department.

Technicians are working to repair the issue.
