OAKLAND -- Skyline High School will reopen Wednesday for its 1,800 students after a ruptured gas line forced officials to cancel classes Tuesday.

A contractor working on the gas line Monday morning near the school's administration office "inadvertently created a rupture in the line while he was attempting to fix it," said Troy Flint, spokesman for the Oakland Unified School District.

PG&E shut off the gas line, but a missing part prevented crews from completing repairs on the Presidents Day holiday.

Flint said school police officers were on campus Tuesday morning to inform students and parents who unaware of the closure.
