In Rockland County, an emergency closing was issued for Nanuet High School as they face a sewage line problem.

NANUET, Rockland County (WABC) -- High school students in one Rockland County town will have to wait to start their school year.

Nanuet High School was closed Wednesday, on what was supposed to be the first day of classes, because of an issue with the main sewer discharge line.

There was no access to the high school property for before- or after-school activities.

Officials say the sewage issue did not impact any other district buildings, so elementary and middle school students in Nanuet still began classes.

"We know everyone at the high school was eagerly anticipating the first day of school," Superintendent Kevin McCahill wrote in a letter to families. "Please know that we are working to fix the issue swiftly so that we can welcome back our high school students and staff as soon as possible."

Officials said the school would be open Thursday after experts were able to identify the sewage problem and remedy the issue.

Students will follow their Day 2 schedule and all students should report to their homeroom at 8:30 a.m. where they will receive a copy of their schedule.
