LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) — Phoenix Academy in the School District of Lancaster was closed Tuesday, Oct. 4, and Wednesday, Oct. 5, due to a nearby water main break, according to messages posted on the district’s website and Facebook page.
A water main break near Phoenix Academy caused some flooding in the lower level of the building, a post from Monday evening said. As of Monday evening, the city water authority had turned off water to the line in order to work on the underground main, according to the district.
The post noted that “the district facilities department is beginning repairs and restoration in the building.”
The school was closed on Tuesday, and in an update on Tuesday evening, Phoenix Academy said the school would remain closed on Wednesday due to water damage inside the building. The building also did not have electrical power as of Tuesday evening.
Only Phoenix Academy was affected by the closure, the district noted, while all other School District of Lancaster schools were to open Tuesday as scheduled.
A grab-and-go lunch is available for Phoenix students on Wednesday, Oct. 5, at the DASH building Rockland Street entrance from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., the school said.
