UPDATE: The principal of the International Academy of Smyrna has said that no classes will be held on Thursday or Friday this week due to an internal water main break that flooded some parts of the building and shut off the school's supply of running water.

Kari Schrock wrote an e-mail to parents just before 8 p.m. Wednesday, in which she confirmed the two-day closure and submitted a list of local childcare providers.

Schrock wrote that repairs are currently underway on the ruptured water line and efforts are being made to remove the water that flooded portions of the first floor of the building. Further correspondence will be sent out when the repairs are complete and classes are to be resumed.

If your child attends Ms. Shearod's second grade class or any third grade class, Schrock is asking that any wet personal items that were brought home today be thoroughly cleaned as a precautionary measure. 

Any personal belongings that were unable to be recovered during the early dismissal on Wednesday are safe and can be retrieved when classes resume at a later date.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE (3:27 p.m., Jan. 8): 
The International Academy of Smyrna is sending students home early and cancelling all after school activities due to a water main break on the campus.

The school sent out an e-mail bulletin just after 2 p.m. informing parents of the need to pick up their children as soon as possible. The communique said that due to the water main break, the school currently has no running water.

In addition, there is a possibility that classes will be cancelled tomorrow at the International Academy due to a lack of running water.

Awesome! I have yet to find the source or cause of my leak. Thanks for looking into it!

County says it is an internal break, and that may be what has happened with your garage. I would reach out to a plumber ASAP!
