Mabel School water issue delays festival

A fall festival originally planned for Oct. 19 at Mabel School was postponed due to a water issue at the school.

Watauga County Schools spokesman Marshall Ashcraft said the problem was due to a pump failure in the well that supplies the school's water. It did not affect classes Friday.

The problem was expected to be repaired this weekend, with school resuming on a normal schedule Monday, Ashcraft said.

The fall festival has been moved to Friday, Oct. 25. Principal Mark Hagaman also used the Alert Now automated phone system to notify Mabel families about the change.
