Superintendent Kurt Steinhaus said the school district is on top of the situation. “The most important thing always is the safety of our students and staff, and that’s what we made sure of when this happened,” he said.
Steinhaus explained that workers immediately plugged the leaks in the roof this morning and alternate rooms were found for the students and teachers. The furniture was covered in plastic in case the plugs don’t hold before permanent repairs can be made. An insurance claim was filed today as well, he said.
“This roof was temporarily patched several years ago following a severe hail storm,” Steinhaus said. “Our goal is to get it repaired quickly so we can get back to normal operations in the classroom.”
