PHOENIX -

A school was forced to close for the day after officials found out their copper water pipes were gone.

This happened at Weekday School near Central and Missouri.

The school's director, Beckie Humphrey, says there was no running water, so she walked outside to see what was going on.  That's when she noticed some copper pipes were missing.

The children were sent home for the day.

"It's unbelievable that somebody could stoop that low to take copper and get how much money for it and inconvenience so many families and children," said Humphrey.

Humphrey says other businesses in the area also had their copper pipes stolen.

Weekday School will reopen Thursday once the pipes are replaced.
