IRVINGTON, N.Y. – The Main Street School in Irvington will reopen Monday after a broken water pipe burst flooded portions of the building and closed the school on Friday.

“Only minor damage was suffered and all essential repairs will be made in order to reopen school on a regular schedule Monday,” Schools Superintendent Kristopher Harrison said in a statement Friday.

Harrison said all building systems have been inspected and the flooded areas have been thoroughly cleaned so that classes could resume.

The school disruption will likely have to be made up in the future because the closure “further complicates our year-long calendar that was already impacted by the recent hurricane,” Harrison said.

Hurricane Sandy's impact on the district's calendar will be addressed by the Board of Education at a later date, Harrison said.

The potential calendar changes will not affect Thanksgiving break. Irvington students will have an early dismissal on Wednesday. Classes will resume on Nov. 26.
