Broken water pipe forces Kennedale ISD students to move to other schools

Students at a suburban Fort Worth school will be in class at new campuses for the rest of the year.

Broken water pipes caused serious damage to James A. Arthur Intermediate School in Kennedale, in southeast Tarrant County.

There were several inches of water inside the building over the weekend and classes had to be canceled on Monday. 

Because the damage is so significant, the school board decided to move the sixth graders up one level to Kennedale Junior High School. 

Fifth graders will go back a level to Patterson Elementary School.

The district will also adust bus routes.
