FYN received a report early this morning that the water shortage in Blue Ridge and McCaysville has created some problems when it comes to the county being able to have a functional school day.
Fannin County School System's Superintendent, Mark Henson, has been advised of the water situation and has decided to cancel school for faculty and students on Friday, January 10, 2013.
Initially, when the water problem was discussed at the Board of Education meeting, school nutritionist Candice Sisson stated that they had an alternate plan for breakfast and lunch at all of the schools in the county that would allow them to serve foods that didn't require water to prepare.
Unfortunately, over night, the water situation did not improve and that is why the decision to cancel school today was made.
All authorities have asked consumers to conserve their water usage until further notice. FYN will continue to provide updates on the water situation for both cities.
