Extended break for students at flooded high school
BURNSVILLE — Students at a Burnsville high school have an extra day off for Thanksgiving break.
Classes were canceled Monday at Nicollet Junior High because a broken water pipe flooded the school during the weekend. A neighbor called police Sunday after spotting water seeping from the front door of the school.
School district operations director Jon Deutsch said that about 60 percent of the main level flooded along with part of the lower level of the school. Electronics, carpeting and ceiling tiles were damaged by water.
School officials hope to have the water cleaned up in time for classes Tuesday.
