N Atlanta High students get snow day without snow….or even water
But what is this? Some 2,000 North Atlanta High students had the day off from school Tuesday (Jan. 26) due to a lack of wet stuff—not snow, but water—on Monday.
North Atlanta High School cancelled school Tuesday while the Atlanta School District worked to repair a water main break that happened sometime on Sunday and left the students, faculty and staff without water all day Monday.
Bottles of water were brought in on Monday and students were given sack lunches. Students told WSB-TV the smell from the water main break was nauseating and unbearable.
Atlanta Public Schools released the following statement: “Our operations staff is making the necessary accommodations for the students and staff, including providing drinking water, bag lunches and adequate water for flushing to minimize disruptions to learning and instruction.”
Water service was restored to North Atlanta High School’s main classroom building, and classes resumed on schedule beginning Wednesday morning.
