More local students are being sent home from school early on their first day back from winter break.

Roosevelt Middle School in New Bedford is dismissing students at this hour, after a mechanical failure of a water meter due to the extreme cold resulted in the school being without water.

New Bedford Schools spokesman Arthur Motta says the school is following normal dismissal procedures. He says the school is expected to be open tomorrow.
