Cary schools resume classes Wednesday

Updated 2/26/2020 10:08 AM

Classes resumed Wednesday at Cary-Grove High School and in Cary Elementary District 26 after a boil order was issued Monday because of a water main break.

High School District 155 Director of Communications Shannon Podzimek sent an email to Cary-Grove High School parents Tuesday confirming that school would resume with its usual schedule on Wednesday.


"Due to the circumstances of the school closure, we will not be required to make up the school day at the end of the school year," Podzimek said.

A message on the District 26 website said water has been restored to all its schools and they will be open Wednesday.

Briargate School is the only school under a boil order from the village until further notice. District officials asked Briargate students and staff to bring bottled water to school during the next several days for drinking until the boil order is lifted. Drinking fountains will not be available at Briargate.

A boil order was issued Monday night for some residents in Cary after a water main break near True Value Manufacturing.

The water main break caused surrounding schools to close and also led to low water pressure or a complete loss of water for properties in the areas south and west of downtown Cary, officials said.

The boil order is expected to remain in effect until at least Wednesday, Cary Director of Public Works Eric Morimoto previously said. Morimoto could not be reached Tuesday to provide an update on repairs.
