MILWAUKEE -- South Milwaukee High School has been closed due to a water main break.

The city water department is currently searching for the location of the pipe burst, according to Jennifer Sielafff, South Milwaukee School District's director of personnel.

Sielafff said that while students were dismissed at 9:45 a.m. Monday -- because there was no running water inside the school -- staff had the option to stay or leave for the day.

Students will not have to make up the missed day of school, according to the district's Twitter page.

Parents were notified by a phone and email blast.
