The 335-student Littlerock Elementary School in Tumwater was closed unexpectedly Tuesday because of a lack of water.
Bottled drinking water will be provided and classes were scheduled to resume Wednesday morning.
Crews replaced a pump, and the water system is now functional, district spokeswoman Kim Howard said. The school’s water was deemed safe for toilets and handwashing.
“We are working with the Department of Health to test the drinking water,” stated a message sent to parents and guardians at the school. “Until the tests are completed, we will provide bottled water to students and staff.”

The school district plans to apply for a waiver from the state Board of Education, and if approved, students won’t have to make up the lost day, Howard said.
