Wallkill Valley Regional High School will remain closed as investigators continue to assess damage caused by the explosion of a house across the street. The blast, which occurred around 11 p.m. on November 27, is believed to have been caused by a leaking above-ground propane tank.

The high school was closed today, November 28 and will be closed tomorrow, November 29. The 8th grade and freshman dance that was scheduled for Friday, November 30 has also been cancelled.

It will reportedly remain closed "indefinitely" until an engineer says it is safe for students to return. Along with some cracked windows and blown out doors, the solar panels on the roof of the school were knocked out from the blast.
