Officials from the Polk School District have announced that a water main break near Eastside Elementary School in Rockmart forced the school to close Friday afternoon.

According to an official in the superintendent’s office, the water pressure at the school was so low Friday morning that school officials began notifying parents of the early release at noon Friday.

The water was completely shut down in order to begin repair of the main. Eastside students not picked up at noon were sent to Rockmart Middle School to await the end of the school day.

No word on how long the repair will take.
