Well it wasn't the cold temps that cancelled classes at Gray Elementary School and Jones County High School Wednesday, it was a city water main break.

Jones County Schools Superintendent William Mathews tells WGXA the break was reported around 7 o'clock Tuesday morning.

The water line was repaired but then busted again later Tuesday afternoon.

Superintendent Mathews says this isn't the first time this has happened, but he suspected the weather contributed.

Around 4 o'clock, Superintendent Mathews announced a patch on the water main seemed to be holding so students should return to school Thursday.

However, he is advising everyone to bring bottled water.
