— Students at Apex Middle School will have the day off Thursday thanks to a heating issue in the school building.

A letter sent home to parents said that maintenance crews worked on the heating problem throughout the day Wednesday, but were unable to fix an underground leak that was causing the issue.

Since repairs will not be completed in time for the building to warm up before schools start, officials decided to cancel classes Thursday. Athletic and extracurricular events will also be canceled.

School officials said they will update students and staff on the status of the repairs on Thursday, but did not say whether the heating issue could impact Friday classes as well.
