Southwood Valley Classes CancelledFeatured Stories, News Friday, September 13th, 2013
1:30 p.m. update:
Friday was an unexpected day off from school at Southwood Valley Elementary in College Station.
CSISD spokesman Chuck Glenewinkel says there was a leak outside the building that resulted in no water pressure.
Glenewinkel says repairs were expected to take most of the day. That would have meant no water for restrooms and water fountains for the more than 600 students and adults.
Glenewinkel says within ten minutes of deciding to cancel classes, all parents had been notified.
By 9 a.m., students had been picked up and none had to wait at College Station High School.
