UPDATE: Sandhill School in Stoughton to reopen Thursday


STOUGHTON (WKOW) -- Administrators at Sandhill Elementary in Stoughton say the school will reopen Thursday.

The school was closed Wednesday after a pipe burst overnight, flooding several classrooms and the library.

District administrator Dr. Tim Onsager says he knows students and parents were ready for classes to begin again.

"It's been four days of, as all of you know, extreme cold, and so they've been cooped up indoors and a lot of them were looking forward to coming back today seeing their friends getting back to a normal routine, so I feel sorry for the families and the elementary students," Onsager said.

While students had the day off, staff members were called in to work to help with the cleanup.
