EL PASO, Texas -- Gadsden Independent School District officials said they will cancel Tuesday's classes at three elementary schools due to a malfunctioning water well.
Sunland Park, Desert View and Riverside elementary schools will not have class or any events scheduled for Tuesday. The cancellation affects all staff and faculty, but campus administrators will remain on duty, officials said.
The water well from the Camino Real Water Utilities is malfunctioning and the district expects water service to be connected by Tuesday. However, it was not known if the water would be restored in time for classes and programs at the schools, officials said.
The three affected schools had class Monday, and they were given bottled water, drinking water tanks and enough portable water to operate the restrooms, officials said.
