EL PASO — A water main break in the Lower Valley made it a bit challenging for students to get to their classes Thursday morning.
El Paso Water Utilities said they received the call of the break around 6:30 Thursday morning at Cadawalader Elementary school.
EPWU crews arrived and stopped the leak but parents, students, and faculty had to drive, hop, and walk through puddles around the perimeter of the school in order to get to class on time.
Educators at the school said class schedules were not impacted and school began on time despite the flooding.
