****UPDATE*** Windlake Academy  will reopen tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 9, according to Karen Rutt, the school's director of education.


MILWAUKEE - Most kids will go back today, but not at one south side school. That's because there's a big mess inside.

Windlake Academy in Milwaukee will be closed again Wednesday because some frozen pipes burst. There's water damage in much of the building, so the charter school may be closed for a few days.

According to Milwaukee DPW crews, they've responded to at least six water-main breaks recently, including one at the East Side Public Library.
