School officials were prepared for Monday's boil advisory.
With a boil advisory under affect for the cities of Brazil, Carbon, Knightsville and Harmony, the schools in the affected areas worked diligently to decontaminate the water.
"Since the advisory only affects the drinking and cooking water, we are following protocol," Clay Community School Corporation Building and Grounds Director Tom Reberger said. "All of the water in the kitchen is being boiled before cooking."
Students have access to drinking water, which is distributed throughout the building.
"All of the water is being boiled then cooled down with ice in insulated containers," he said, "which is then being made available to students and faculty."
Following protocol, if the water remained turned off and schools in the northern part of the county were closed those in the southern part of the county would be closed.
"It is corporation policy that if for instance Northview High School is closed, then so would Clay City High School," Reberger said. "This situation arose last year when a transformer blew at Clay City and we had to close schools."
With the boil advisory in affect until further notice, Reberger was adamant on the protocols and policy to ensure the safety of the students that will remain in effect until the advisory is lifted.
