Water Main Break Prompts Early Dismissal at Lyman Hall High School in Wallingford

Lyman Hall High School is closing late Thursday morning due to a water main break nearby on Wharton Brook Drive, according to school officials.

The school posted an alert on its website notifying parents that students will be dismissed early at 11:55 a.m. due to the ruptured water main.

"The water will be turned off to the school so that the Water Department can resolve the problem. Transportation for those students who normally take the bus home will be provided. We apologize for any inconvenience however it is essential that we work with the water department to rectify its problem," the school said on its website.

Repairs to the water main will begin once the students have been dismissed, according to officials at the scene.  The problem is expected to be fixed before the start of school on Friday.

The broken pipe feeds the school only, so no other structures or homes are affected, officials said.
