Christian Academy of Knoxville High School remains closed for flood damage

Local News

The Christian Academy of Knoxville had to cancel Thursday classes for the high school for the fourth day in a row because of flooding.

The road is closed leading up to the high school in one direction because it was covered with water.

School officials said another issue that caused only high school classes to be cancelled was high water affecting utilities.

Officials also said the campus center is also closed because it’s completely blocked off by flooded roadways. They said however, that they were able to walk into the building and found water had not flooded the floors.

Maintenance had been able to pump water out of one of the flooded areas, but the other flooded area that affects the utilities to both the high school and campus center is unable to be drained.

Cancelled classes won’t stop students from getting their education, according to a high school parent.

Students are required to complete homework online while they wait for the water to recede and the buildings reopen.

School officials said they hope high school students will be able to go back to class on Friday.
