Darren Doyle, story:
Superintendent of Edmonson County Schools Brian Alexander has stated that all schools will be in session on Thursday, October 26, 2023.
A broken 12-inch water main was the reason that school was cancelled today, with Kyrock Elementary not having any water available.
"After consulting with the Edmonson County Water District, and our staff at Edmonson County Schools, all schools will be running on time tomorrow and all schools will be open," said Alexander. "We apologize for any inconvenience today's closure caused for our families. Due to the timing of the water outage, school closure was unavoidable."
Alexander also said he realized that Kyrock would still be under a boil water advisory for tomorrow but the school system is taking measures.
"We have been advised that Kyrock is under a boil water advisory and we will be taking necessary steps in our lunchroom to boil water before cooking. We have also delivered cases of water to Kyrock for student and staff to drink until the advisory is lifted."
He also added that pallets of drinking water are currently on-hand for any other advisory that might arise at other local schools.
