Students released from school early due to water main break in Southington

SOUTHINGTON — The corner of Main Street and Old Turnpike Road was closed for an extended time Friday due to a water main break.

This all happened around 11 a.m. Friday.

According to Southington’s water department, they said this is affecting nine homes and the Walter A Derynoski Elementary School.

The school had no water Friday and in response, students were let out early.

“Today was a big disaster that even the bathrooms weren’t working so kids had to go to like across the street to go to the bathroom and it was just a bit disaster,” said student Zsolt Levai.

“I was sad because I wanted to learn more and I just wanted to stay in school,” said student Szabina Levai.

At this time, the street has reopened.
