Duerring also said that each school has plenty of clean water "for those kids who will need or want bottled water to drink."
Martha Pickens, one of Piedmont's cooks, said the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department checked out the school's kitchen and approved it to reopen Tuesday.
Several teachers still have do-not-use advisories at their homes.
Kim Landers said she hasn't had access to clean water for about two days. Her house in Cross Lanes was finally approved to start flushing out water pipes Thursday.
"I'm excited to get home and take a shower," Landers said.
Kanawha County students returned from a nine-day holiday break on Jan. 3, only to face more days off because of subzero temperatures. In the past two weeks, students have attended school for just four days, and one of those featured a two-hour weather delay. On Monday, students are off for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Sturgill said teachers are concerned for their students, many who had been without clean water for more than a week. She hopes they all are allowed to return Tuesday.
"We are just anxious to get back to the normal routine," she said. "We miss our kids."
