ALBION – School employees repaired a problem on a water supply line in the Middle School today, which caused the school district to cancel classes.

“The leak was in Middle School crawl space and shut down supply to almost all of the Middle School only,” said Michael Bonnewell, the district superintendent. “It appears that a cap installed at the end of a water supply line long ago failed at some point Sunday night or Monday.”

School employees went deep into the crawl space for the repair.

“We are thankful for the support of the fire department who assisted with water removal,” Bonnewell said.

School will be back in session on Wednesday and today’s varsity and JV games will go on. The home Cross Country meet will be held at 4:45 p.m. Boys JV and varsity soccer will travel to Wilson. Modified soccer games are postponed.

High school juniors also have the PSAT test on Wednesday morning. Those taking the test are to report to the L.G.I. at 8 a.m., and bring number 2 non-mechanical pencils and a calculator.
