North Elementary Closed Tuesday After Waterline Break

Posted: Updated:

Some Monongalia County students' spring break was a bit longer than expected, as North Elementary was closed on Tuesday.

Last week, while students were off, a waterline broke in an upstairs girl's bathroom, causing an estimated $20,000-30,000 in damage, according to the school's principal.

Teachers have been putting in a few extra hours cleaning up damaged classrooms in hopes to get students back in class.

"It's very important to get the students back. I know it's a huge inconvenience to the families," said principal Natalie Webb. "I'm a parent myself, I know you have to find childcare and some parent might have had to take a day off to stay home with the children, so our top priority is to get our children back so we can continue their education."

Class will resume as normal Wednesday.
