Water problems cancel classes at District 19

HEBRON – Class have been canceled today at Alden-Hebron School District 19 due to a village boil order and water problems at the elementary school.

All extracurricular activities are still scheduled, and all certified and district staff are working today, according to the district’s website.

Officials made the decision to cancel classes Monday at the district’s three schools after a water leak was discovered at the elementary school over the weekend, Superintendent Debbie Ehlenburg said. The village is also under a boil order.

"It was easier to cancel all classes because school lunches are made at the high school," Ehlenburg said.

Monday is instead being used as an in-service day for staff, which will be swapped with a day in April that the students were scheduled to have off, Ehlenburg said.

District 19 includes separate elementary, middle and high schools.
