Lincoln School students in Clinton are learning (learned) at home Friday after a water main break forced the closure of the school.
City Administrator Tim Followell tells Regional Radio News crews were on scene late into the night Thursday make repairs, which forced administrators to call off in-person learning.
A battle with the water tower near Clinton High School and Junior High School campuses has been going on this week due to the extreme cold. Followell indicates things are beginning to turn around for the better with that situation.
Followell says the water main break near Lincoln School was severe. He indicates later in the evening Thursday, city officials could not guarantee things would be fixed in time for parents to plan for Friday morning so the recommendation was to have school called off.
