A high school and middle school in Wright County are closed for the day after a problem with the heating system.

Students at Dassel-Cokato High School and middle school were sent home at 10:30 a.m.

According to the school's website, there was a break in the high school's heating system, and 'although the water in the system is not toxic, it is giving off a strong smell.' 

Students who drove to school were released early.

Buses and parents are picking up the remaining students.
