WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - More than 650 students at Wiley Intermediate School spent Friday afternoon at Watertown High School due to a water main break.

District Superintendent Patti LaBarr said the leak was discovered in the morning. By the afternoon, she said students were unable to use restrooms in the building, which prompted officials to send the kids to the high school.

While at WHS, the students watched the movie, ‘Dolphin Tale,’ in the auditorium and took part in group activities on the football field.

The students were dismissed from school normally.

LaBarr said the leak has been repaired and class will resume Monday at Wiley as usual.

However, if tests on the water quality show a problem, bottled water will be offered to students.
