Bronxville students get early release as flood waters fill classrooms

Students in Bronxville were dismissed early Friday when their school campus was flooded by heavy rains.

School officials say water poured into the basements of the elementary, middle and high schools from the backup of the Bronx River. Crews worked all day pumping water out of the basement level that houses some of the high school classrooms. Students say they were first evacuated to the auditorium, but the roof was leaking and water was coming in through the vents.

School officials say work will continue throughout the weekend to prepare for Monday morning.
