Classes canceled for Kentucky School the Blind due to water main break

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- After a week of experiencing significant water main breaks due to freezing temperatures, the Kentucky School for the Blind (KSB), will cancel classes for the week of January 13-17. 

That's according to a news release from the KSB.

The damage occurred in the McDaniel Classroom Building and also resulted in a loss of heat to the building.

Contractors are onsite and are working to correct the situation. An extensive clean up will be done prior to the return of students and staff. 

The school was set to reopen on Tuesday, January 21 following the Martin Luther King Holiday.  All staff and parents have been contacted with the school's emergency alert system.

Makeup days are tentatively scheduled for the weeks of February 24-28 and June 2-6.

As the statewide educational resource center on blindness, KSB provides comprehensive educational services to all Kentucky students who are blind and visually impaired, birth to 21.
