A waterline break in the basement of Highlands High School has shut down the school for the day.

The boys' basketball games scheduled for tonight have been rescheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 15 at the high school.

The break was discovered this morning after students arrived, said district spokeswoman Misty Chybrzynski.

Students were dismissed at 9:30 a.m. Staff also was sent home.

Chybrzynski said the water leaked onto some electronic equipment that controls various operations within the building, including the fire alarm system.

To make repairs the power had to be shut off to the entire building.

The telephone system may be affected by the outage and email will not be available district-wide. The district server will be down, so anyone who needs to reach the district's other school buildings will need to contact that school directly.

Chybrzynski said repairs should be completed today.
