A main water line break at Grand Valley High School in Parachute canceled classes on Tuesday and required school to be closed again Wednesday, as maintenance crews work to repair the problem.

Garfield County School District 16 Assistant Superintendent Todd Ellis said water to the school had to be shut down after the leak was discovered at around 6:30 p.m. Monday.

Originally, the district was hoping to reopen for a full day of classes on Wednesday. But, according to a school official, additional breaks were discovered on Tuesday.

Ellis added that any flooding occurred outside the school and that the break happened in an area that would not impact classes. Food suppliers will need to use a different entrance in the meantime, he said.
