Wayland Middle School is closed today due to a water main break, according to Wayland Public Schools superintendent Dr. Paul Stein.
"The timing was not ideal and students were arriving as we were just figuring all of this out, so a decision was very quickly made to move them directly to the field house at the high school," Stein said.
Most students were picked up by parents at Wayland High School by 8:30 a.m.
Stein expects the middle school to be open tomorrow.
"After talking to the facilities folks, they do expect to work around the clock and have it ready by tomorrow," Stein said.
Wayland Fire Chief Vincent Smith said the fire department was notified of the break by the Department of Public Works at 6:51 a.m.
