TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A school on Tucson's south side lost water service after a pipe broke on Thursday, Sept. 22.

According to Sunnyside Unified School District spokeswoman Mary Veres, the water line broke at about 8:45 a.m.

Repair crews fixed the pipe at Billy Lane Lauffer Middle School, 5385 E. Littletown Road, but Veres said the water won't be turned on until Friday morning.

Regardless of whether more work is needed, school will NOT be canceled on Friday. If the water is still shut off, the school will do what it did Thursday to accommodate.

Water bottles were brought for students and portable bathrooms were made available.

The school also provided lunch for the students, Veres said.

After-school sports and activities were moved to Sierra 2-8 school, 5801 S. Del Moral Boulevard, near East Drexel Road and South Campbell Avenue.

Classes were not been disrupted.
