MACON, Miss. (WTVA) - After the cold temperatures caused some pipes to freeze, classes have been canceled again Thursday in Noxubee County.

Superintendent Roger Liddell said this is because of a water main break at Noxubee County High School. All of the schools had frozen pipes Tuesday and Wednesday but some repairs have been made.

Wednesday was supposed to be the first day back to class for students. Staff and administrators did report to work Tuesday and Wednesday.

While it’s nice for the students to have an extended holiday break, these days will have to be made up later this school year.

Superintendent Liddell said he apologizes for problems this has caused students, parents and teachers in the district.

Schools are scheduled to re-open at normal time on Friday.
