Knoxville (WVLT) -- Students at Knoxville Catholic High School will reopen Tuesday after plumbing problems shut them down Monday.

According to Principal Dickie Sompayrac, neighboring catholic church All Saints had to cut its water off last Wednesday due to a leak.

The leak has been isolated, but the plumbing had to be turned off in the high school's main academic building.

Sompayrac says the problem was fixed this afternoon and students will be back in class on Tuesday.

Sunday Masses at All Saint's went go on as normal.
