NEWARK — School officials in Newark said Tuesday despite the city's ongoing water crisis, water in schools is safe for students to drink.

Schools in Newark use commercial grade water filters, different from the filters distributed to Newark residents.

"They can be certain that the water in schools is safe for them," said Valerie Wilson, Newark Schools Business Administrator.
