Daily Herald report

School will be back in session Friday for students of Iroquois Community School in Des Plaines, which canceled classes unexpectedly Wednesday and Thursday after a sprinkler system pipe burst half-hour into the school day Wednesday.

All classes will take place on Friday, including the SPARK program and kindergarten, and before school activities will begin and end at their regularly scheduled times, according to an announcement from Des Plaines School District 62.

Class was canceled Wednesday and Thursday as crews worked to clean up flooded hallways near the front vestibule entrance, where the pipe had burst due to cold temperatures.

"While there are areas of the building that will need repair over the next few weeks, Iroquois is drying out very nicely and is safe for student occupancy," according to the announcement.
