JPS cancels classes for Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018 due to water issues

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — The Jackson Public School District has canceled classes for  Wednesday, January 10, 2018.

JPS officials said although water pressure has continued to improve, approximately 61 percent of schools and offices are still with low and inadequate or no water pressure.

All schools will be closed on Wednesday, January 10th.  However, principals and limited central office staff will report to work. The absence of water pressure also impacts our ability to provide heat to schools as the heating and ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) systems requires water to warm the buildings.
