Water Main Break Closes Schools in Winchester

Schools in Winchester were closed Thursday because a water main on Main Street broke around 3:30 a.m., but the superintendent said there will be school Friday.

The superintendent said the water main break directly affected Batcheller School and Pearson would also close for the day.

School officials said the central offices were closed because of the water main break and morning or evening activities were canceled Thursday.

The city's pipes are more than 100 years old.
