LOCKPORT, N.Y. — Students at the Emmet Belknap Intermediate School in Lockport got to start their weekend early due to a water main break at the school.

The water main break forced school officials to evacuate the school due to flooding in the building. They say no one was injured or in danger. 

Because of the flooding, students were dismissed early. The district had to take some extra time to dismiss students who take the bus home because buses weren't immediately available.

Parents who pick up their children were able to meet them at the main entrance of the football field behind the school.

Personal items and school materials that were left behind will be secured in classrooms and lockers until Monday morning.
