BLYTHEVILLE, Ark. (KAIT) - All students in the Blytheville School District will be using virtual learning Monday due to trouble with roads in the town, school officials said Sunday.

According to a tweet from the Blytheville School Safety Twitter page, staff should report to work at 9 a.m. Monday.

On Friday, school officials said students at Blytheville Primary School would be continuing its virtual learning Monday as crews continue to work on water and building issues at the school.

According to a post on the Blytheville School District Facebook page, problems with water pipes and awnings are the cause for the change.

“Due to the winter weather, we had some water pipes burst and a couple of awnings fall from the weight of the snow. Repairs will still be going on Monday, February 22, so students will continue to be virtual,” school officials said in the post.

At this time all other campuses expect to be open Monday. Only Primary Pre-K-2 will be virtual.
