WESTPORT, Mass. (WPRI) — Students in Westport will have to wait one more day to head back to school.

The first day of school on Tuesday was canceled at Westport Elementary School and Westport Middle-High School due to issues with the water system at both schools.

Morning and after-school care was also canceled.

Superintendent Thomas Aubin told 12 News he got a call around 7 p.m. Monday that there was low water pressure in both community schools.

Aubin said there was a clear problem as the tanks were below 250 gallons of water and the schools use between 3,700 and 4,000 gallons each day. He believes there was a water pump failure.

“It was supposed to start today at 7:30 here at the Middle-High School and our staff worked exceedingly hard to open up so needless to say all of us are a little disappointed that this took place,” Aubin said.

Kindergarten screenings were still held as scheduled at the Macomber School.

Aubin said the well pump is being worked on and school should open on Wednesday barring any setbacks.
