    The Journalism and Media Academy and Culinary Arts Academy in Hartford is closed today because of a water main break that is affecting 77 properties. 

    School officials said they decided to keep the school closed for today to protect the safety of students. MDC said there will be no water in the building until the afternoon because of the break in a 12-inch water main at 150 Tower Ave. 

    Crews had to shut down three water mains in the area, on Tower Street, Cambridge Street and Rosemont Street around 10:15 a.m. and 77 properties, as well as the Journalism and Media Academy and Culinary Arts Academy and Price Temple are impacted.

    Repairs are expected to continue until between 4:15 p.m. and 6:15 p.m.
