Water Main Break Fixed, Independence Students Return to School
Students in the Independence Community School District, finally got back to their classes today (Nov. 27), after an extended Thanksgiving break, prompted by problems with their water service.
A water main break in Independence was the reason school officials cancelled classes Monday, for the East and West Elementary School, the Kidsville/Early Childhood Center, the Administration building, plus St. John's Elementary, because they use the bus system from the Independence Community District.
The Junior/Senior High School in Independence was not effected, so students were back Monday morning from the holiday recess.
The water main break was expected to be fixed by Monday afternoon; all classes resumed today, as normal.
