Water problems at Laville Junior-Senior High School have closed school again, at least through Tuesday. Now students will have to make up those two days next semester.

The grand total is now eight days without class.

Laville students already missed six days back in November when the water well was replaced twice. This past Saturday, students using the school for a basketball tournament noticed some water pressure problems.

The well is broken for a third time, but the company thinks it is due to electrical issues.

Students will return one day early from winter break and have class on President's Day to make up the time.

“The water's running in the building now we have to go through the sanitation and the testing of the water, which we have to do every time to make sure the water's safe,” said superintendent of Union-North United School Corporation Mitch Mawhorter. “This time though we are tracing all of the electrical problems leading up to the pump and we're going to try to replace all of that infrastructure.”

Only the junior-senior high students will have to make those days up.

The elementary school missed days in November due to the water problems but they are in session this week.
