Thoreau Demonstration Academy was closed Tuesday as crews work to restore usable water to the building. 

Pipes within the sewage system in the area of the school, 7370 E. 71st St., collapsed, Tulsa Public Schools announced, and there were no classes in the space Tuesday.

The school was expected to reopen Wednesday after repairs were made, Tulsa Public Schools said in a news release.

All other Tulsa schools were open as usual.
