Classes for the St. Joseph School District have been canceled for Friday, March 3, 2017 due to a boil advisory impacting a large area of the city.
The boil advisory went into effect Thursday following a water main break. It is unclear when the advisory will be lifted.
Because the advisory area impacts more than half of the schools in the district, the district said it is unable to supply enough drinking water to each building in a timely manner. The advisory could also impact food services in buildings.
“We decided it would be in the best interest and for the safety of our students to cancel classes for the day,” said Dr. Robert Newhart, Superintendent. “All twelve month employees should report as scheduled.”
