Despite the boil water advisory still in effect, many students in Oakland county returned to school today with some minor adjustments.

Novi High School students were back to class, and told Channel 7 it was business as usual with some minor accommodations.

Students say the school offered free water bottles at lunch, but drinking fountains were off limits.

The cafeteria, they, was open. But even though Novi was back to school, not all districts were up and running.

Farmington said all their affected schools would re-open on Thursday, while Walled Lake consolidated schools made the same announcement, saying they wanted to air on the side of caution.
