GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich High School students got an extra long weekend after a water leak was discovered Tuesday in a tank that had been repaired and inspected this summer, a Greenwich Public Schools District said in a press release.

The water problem at Greenwich High School was due to a leak in a hot water storage tank in the lower level of the Science Wing below the classrooms. The tank had been repaired and inspected by an outside contractor as recently as August, and the tank had again been checked as recently as Friday, the district said.

Water was contained in the utility basement and has already been pumped out and the water tank will be replaced.

The Greenwich Public Schools Facilities Department is working with the town's Building Department to ensure all systems are functional before making any decisions on reopening the school, the district said.

All after-school activities have been canceled as well for Tuesday.
