Central High School Let Out Early Because of Sewage Backup

Knoxville County (WVLT) - Students at Central High School in Knoxville went home early today because of a sewage backup in the school.

Principal John Miller says the students were being let out at 11:45 a.m. Monday because of a sewage backup in the kitchen.

Principal Miller says the odor was just too bad and they can't serve lunch.

Central High School has 1,400 students and also makes lunches for five other schools.

This is the first time a sewage backup and flood has occurred in the school's 36 year history.

There's no word yet on if there will be classes as scheduled on Tuesday.
