Classes have been canceled Tuesday at Warren Township High School's freshmen-sophomore campus in Gurnee due to a boil order for drinking water issued by the village. Warren District 121 Superintendent John Ahlgrim said an inability to safely prepare breakfast and lunch as required in the school cafeteria led to the cancellation. Ahlgrim said administrators discussed other options before deciding closing Tuesday was best. Water pressure was restored early Monday afternoon to the campus and other nearby areas after a main break at Grand Avenue and O'Plaine. District 121 officials canceled classes at the O'Plaine campus at 8:15 a.m. Monday after the main break left the building without water pressure. Ahlgrim said it's hoped the O'Plaine building can open Wednesday. The Almond campus for juniors and seniors is in session Tuesday and will follow a regular schedule.
