A Florida school district has issued an advisory that it’s closed its schools for the remainder of the week, because of contamination of a water main.
The Florida Department of Education said Friday that the Greenville County School District had received notice from the Department of Health and Human Services that the school district is closed Friday due to the contamination of the Green River water main at Lake Charles Park.
The district said in a statement that schools will be closed Friday through Tuesday, but will reopen on Wednesday.
The Greenville-Caddo School District said it notified the Greenriver Watershed Management District of its closure Friday and that the district will be responsible for water sampling.
“The district has taken all necessary precautions and will continue to do so throughout the week to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, staff and visitors,” the district said.
Greenville-Larimer County Schools has also closed its campus.
A spokeswoman for the district told The Associated Press that no students have been affected.
The district said the school is still accepting students and that there is no threat to students or staff.
