WARWICK, R.I. — Several Warwick schools cancelled classes Thursday morning because of a water main break near Toll Gate High School.

The schools affected include Winman Junior High, Toll Gate High School, Drum Rock Early Childhood Center, and Career and Technical Center.

Warwick police confirmed with ABC6 News that there was a water main break early Thursday morning on the private road that connects Winman Junior High to Toll Gate.

There was apparently a sink hole that had formed from a leaky, old pipe.

Police shutdown the source of the break.

They are working all day to fix it in the hopes of opening back up tomorrow.
