School's water problem interrupts class
NORTHEAST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- Crews have fixed a water problem at a South Florida school that disrupted classes.
A broken valve left the Dr. Michael M. Krop campus in Northeast Miami-Dade without running water.
Students had to walk to a school next door to use the restrooms. They said the long lines caused interruptions to class time. "You can't use the bathroom that much. You can only go like once," said student Aleisha St. Louis. "It's hard because you got a long line like with 30 to 40 people, and you gotta wait to use the bathroom."
The valve was eventually fixed at the school, but a boil water order was put in place as a precaution.
The school said students were given bottled water. "We couldn't really focus on doing work," said student Max St. Louis. "The teacher had to go to the restroom. The whole first half of class we had to wait for the teacher to come back."
