Students at Alton Middle School are heading back to school today (Wednesday) now that a gas leak near the Annex building has been repaired. The leak forced students to be sent home Monday, and complications during the repair caused a cancellation of school on Tuesday, but the all clear has been given for a return to class on Wednesday.
Alton School District Assistant Superintendent Kristie Baumgartner says they had originally thought school would resume Tuesday, until Ameren crews ran into water.
She says no decision has been made as to whether the missed days will be made up. That decision will be made at a later date.
